You are invited to attend a January 16, 2019 teleconference on Critical Minerals, National Security & Supply Chains. The program, hosted by the American Bar Association and co-sponsored by MassPoint Legal and Strategy Advisory PLLC, will explore steps taken by the Trump Administration to reduce U.S. dependence on foreign source minerals deemed “critical” by the United States, and the potential consequences of those actions. For example, will the criticality determination lead to Section 232 trade investigations? Will we see further targeting of corruption in the minerals supply chain, such as in recent sanctions and Foreign Corrupt Practices Act cases involving DRC cobalt mining? Will the United States, as part of its continuing economic confrontation with China, challenge China’s position in Africa’s mining industries? What risks and opportunities might flow, such as from new mining operations in the United States or disruptions of global supply chains? We plan to discuss on January 16. Join us!
