On July 9, 2020, starting at 9.30 am, the Securities and Exchange Commission will host a roundtable discussion on investing in emerging markets.  Given the proposed legislation regarding public companies based in emerging markets that do not allow access to PCAOB inspections and other regulatory oversight (see our prior blog post here) and the President’s order here (see our prior blog post here) regarding the need to study and propose measures to address these matters, the SEC roundtable should prove interesting.  The panels will address retail investor concerns, the limitations on inspection and enforcement in emerging markets and auditor oversight, and disclosure and reporting considerations with respect to investments in emerging markets.  See the notice for additional details regarding the agenda here.
