Hot Topics in Public Policy: Trade

  • 700 Pennsylvania Avenue Southeast Washington, DC, 20003 United States (map)

Trade policy is more important than ever. The administration frequently cuts through even the most madcap of news cycles with announcements on tariffs and trade negotiations; but what are the ins and outs of these issues and what are the macro trends driving the current discussion?

The Government Affairs Industry Network (GAIN) is pleased to invite you to our second annual panel on Trade. This panel is part of GAIN’s Hot Topics in Public Policy series, focused on issues currently — or soon-to-be — moving through the 116th Congress. These panels bring together thought leaders in the industry to discuss the current state-of-play, providing insights and intel to help attendees stay ahead of the game in the policy discussions heating up DC.

Come hear from our panel of trade experts as they provide updates on a broad range of topics like the U.S.-China trade war, USMCA ratification, and trade policy enforcement.

GAIN is pleased to partner with Samsung, the Washington International Trade Association (WITA) and Young Trade Professionals on this event.
