This will include a discussion of how flexible the Saudis and Emiratis have been in negotiating these joint ventures with Western defense companies, key contractual and operational issues that need to be addressed in establishing and operating these joint ventures, and how Western defense companies have addressed export control, anti-corruption and antiboycott law compliance, intellectual property protection, and other issues that may arise in international joint ventures in the Middle East. 11:00 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. CDT.
