    Event Synopsis:
    Fiscal year 2018 has shown several notable trade enforcement actions around the globe and practitioners are expecting more developments to emerge this year.

    President Trump’s trade war with China was temporarily halted with a tariff agreement of a 90-day truce after the G-20 summit last November 30 and December 1, 2018, delaying the initial decision to increase 25% tariff on Chinese goods in 2019. Moreover, the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) which will soon replace the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) also adds more anticipation in light of these developments. Hence, businesses and companies should remain alert for the shifting of policies and prepare themselves to calibrate their own programs and become compliant with current and impending regulations.

    Listen as a panel of distinguished professionals organized by The Knowledge Group provide the audience with the latest information regarding China tariffs and the new NAFTA. Speakers, among other things, will discuss what more there is to know about this significant topic as well as explore opportunities and challenges.
