What? Breakout 3: Addressing new challenges in the maritime sector
The shipping industry is seeing big changes when it comes to sanctions imposition; whereas previously responsibility for allowing illicit activity fell on the shoulders of banks and FIs, scope has now been widened to the whole maritime industry, from forwarders to shippers. This breakout will consider the potential consequences of this, including additional costs coming down the chain as a result of this new regulatory burden.
