Less than three years into the Trump Administration, the US is embroiled in multiple trade disputes with economic and geopolitical rivals, close allies, and traditional trading partners. The Trump approach to trade is characterized by unilateral action and a transactional approach to international relations. We will discuss both the state of play between China and the United States and the issues that presently divide the US from such allies as the EU, Japan, and Korea. With a US Presidential election just around the corner, this is the time to review what the Trump team has accomplished, what remains unfinished, and the outlook for the months ahead.
We will also explore the recent state regulatory enforcement efforts and the international effects. Asian companies operating in the US are often familiar with federal enforcement agencies. However, state enforcement agencies are often overlooked, but can wield substantial enforcement authority. This presentation will survey some of the notable areas of regulation by key state agencies in the US, including bitcoin, data privacy, securities laws, and energy regulations.
Mark Herlach and Ron Zdrojeski, leading trade specialists and US based partners from Eversheds Sutherland Washington, DC and New York, will share their views.
