Free Trade, Fair Trade, and Trade Wars? And what’s going on with the Mid-Terms?
Last year’s cautious optimism in manufacturing has been replaced by broad uncertainty and supply chain chaos. After the positive effect of tax reform and the more moderate approach to regulation by the current Administration, the economy was moving ahead. Now, the impacts of Section 232 and 301 tariffs are being felt widely in the manufacturing sector and the economy, inserting disruptions into North American supply chains. How can the Steel Wire Industry maneuver in this new environment?
At this year’s meeting you will hear from experts on international trade, with the latest information regarding the current status of tariff programs and NAFTA renegotiation and the latest actions and activities in the global trade arena. In addition, the mid-term elections will be in the forefront of the political news, the results of which could substantially change the status quo in Washington, DC. With a Keynote by the President of the National Foreign Trade Council, Ambassador Rufus Yerxa, a broad panel of experts on the Section 232 and 301 tariffs, and a mid-term election update from The Cook Political Report’s David Wasserman, you cannot afford to miss it! You can find details on the fantastic speaker line-up here.
Come to Washington, DC this September to discuss the state of affairs with industry colleagues and hear the latest from the experts, inside the beltway. This meeting will provide the latest information you need to navigate this new terrain. Join North American wire producers in DC this September!
