The Association of Women in International Trade (WIIT) invites you to a Trade Talk on alternative trade remedy provisions. Antidumping and countervailing duty proceedings are well known, but increasingly alternative provisions in U.S. law such as sections 201, 232, 301, and 337 are in the news as new cases are brought. Join us in an exploration of these alternative trade remedy provisions.
