Get Up to Speed on the New Executive Branch Process for Reviewing Foreign Participation in US Telecom Sector

On April 4, 2020, President Trump issued an Executive Order formalizing and revising the “Team Telecom” process. With the official formalization and expanded authority of the new Team Telecom Committee, it is clear that there is a new national security regulator in town. As telecom license applications, M+A activity and other telecom-sector deals with foreign entities will now be given more attention, scrutiny and oversight by the government, practitioners in this space will have an increased need to understand the new processes involved and how to efficiently and effectively navigate them.

Attend ACI’s premiere National Forum on Team Telecom and engage in meaningful dialogue with telecommunications industry executives and practitioners specializing in National Security, Telecommunications, International Trade, Import/Export Compliance and Global M&A to gain critical strategies for managing reviews in the new Team Telecom environment, meeting new timelines, eliminating uncertainty and overcoming key challenges and pitfalls.
