The world’s biggest economies – Japan, China and Europe – have all been drawn into negotiations with the current U.S. administration. While the scope, context and prospects for each of these negotiations are different, they are engaging a formidable counterpart with the world’s most experienced negotiation teams, operating under clearly defined objectives and streamlined processes that were refined over several decades.
