New Strategies for International Trade & Supply Chains under the Trump Administration:  Options; Timetables; Preparations
You are cordially invited to a lively discussion on the likely and potential changes in Tax and Trade policies by the Trump Administration – policies that will affect every company whose supply chains or customers extend beyond the U.S.  On Thursday, March 2, our review will include Congress vs. presidential proposals for a border tax or VAT; renegotiating trade agreements; conflicts with Canada, Mexico, China and other trading partners; supply chain management; and other competitive considerations.   The program will be presented by a team comprised of subject matter experts with extensive experience in these areas.

Topics to be discussed include:

International Trade Agreements

  • What are the President’s power regarding international trade agreements?
  • What has President Trump said he would do?
  • What tactics is the Trump Administration most likely to utilize?
  • What is the impact of President Trump’s proposed policies on international trade agreements?

Retaliatory Tariffs

  • What are the President’s powers to impose additional or retaliatory tariffs?
  • How would each of the potential trade remedy scenarios play out and over what time period (Section 301, safeguards, voluntary restraint agreements/quotas, anti-dumping duties, countervailing duties, Section 337, WTO)?
  • What’s the precedent and what’s the likelihood of each combination?
  • What are the likely reactions of our trade partners (retaliatory tariffs, WTO cases, etc.)?
    Tax Reform
  • What proposals are being considered by Congress and the new administration, and what are their chances for being implemented?
  • How would tax reform affect supply chains of multinational businesses?
  • How would the House Blueprint or President Trump’s import tax affect tax treaties?
