International business executives’ inboxes present more overseas risks and opportunities than ever before. Traditional global challenges to doing business have expanded beyond tariff and other border restrictions to an array of non-tariff and regulatory barriers to success. Added to these more conventional issues that international businesses must navigate are the ever-changing policies of foreign governments, fluid populist movements, rapid technological advances, and a greater awareness of the importance of sustainable development. No one is better positioned than Hills – a former USTR, two-time cabinet officer, respected founder of a national law firm and global advisory consultancy, and member of numerous Fortune 500 boards –  to offer insights at the intersection of business and world politics.
