Government actions increasingly affect companies involved in the global trade of goods and services. Whether governments are negotiating multilateral, regional or bilateral trade agreements, or revising national laws and regulations, the involvement of governments has a direct impact on the rules governing international trade. While the ultimate goal may be a more liberalized trading system, the immediate result is just as likely to be a thicket of rules, procedures and exceptions. This can mean an even more difficult business environment.
