ECIPE Seminar: Whither US Trade Policy under President Trump – NAFTA, Steel Tariffs and its Role in World Trade Policy

March 15 2018
Venue: ECIPE Office, Avenue des Arts 40, 6th floor, 1040 Brussels
Speakers: Frank Lavin
Time: 10:00

Join us for a discussion with Frank Lavin.

Donald Trump is upending US trade policy and putting the country on a collision course with its core trade partners. NAFTA is currently under renegotiation and the President has threatened to pull out of the trade agreement, just like he pulled out of the Trans-Pacific Partnership. The newly announced tariffs on steel and aluminium are challenging to many long-standing trading partners of the US – including the EU – and will lead to retaliation. Where is US trade policy going to go under Trump? Will there be more protectionism coming – or can the US Congress fight back?
