International Trade: Navigating a Changing Landscape
Long-term trends and new developments are impacting the international trading system. 2018 to date has seen the imposition of U.S. unilateral tariffs on more than $100 billion of imports and resulting retaliation by several major trading partners; renegotiation of existing trade agreements such as NAFTA and KORUS; the conclusion of major trade agreement negotiations that do not include the U.S. leaving U.S. businesses at potential competitive disadvantage; and twice the number of new trade-restrictive measures applied by countries compared to last year, according to the WTO.  Presentation looks at the legal, policy, business and diplomatic angles of these developments.  It will include a primer on U.S. trade remedy laws as well as their historical and current use, legal processes created for obtaining exemptions to increased import duties recently imposed by the United States, an update on WTO dispute settlement cases involving the United States, and an update on NAFTA renegotiations and other trade negotiations of the United States.

Speakers: Jill O’Donnell and Matthew Schaefer
