Trade Forecast: View from the Hill

  • April 22, 2016
    3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Over the past year, there have been some key advances in trade policy, such as the passage of Trade Promotion Authority and the Trade Facilitation and Enforcement Act of 2015. Yet, important items remain on the 2016 Congressional trade agenda. Our speakers will give WIIT members and Hill staff an overview of these issues and insight into when we can expect to see key legislation like the Miscellaneous Tariff Bill and the Trans-Pacific Partnership hit the House and Senate floors this year.

This will be an OFF-THE-RECORD discussion.

Thank you to our event sponsor UPS!
