At SMI we recognize that the world is not always a safe place. However, as the world has gotten “flatter”, business travelers are often times required to venture to parts of the globe that they would otherwise prefer not to visit. Political unrest and public upheaval, terrorism, kidnapping, criminal intent, and overall street violence are just some of the issues that international business travelers must be aware of In addition, medical issues such as dehydration, malaria, or even a broken leg could severely threaten your life in some countries.

Therefore, let SMI be your guide to these parts part of the world.
