Dealing with the Asia Pacific Ring of Trade Fire

June 18, 2020 • Webinar

Starts: 6:00 PM (EDT)
Ends: 7:30 PM (EDT)

The suggestion that the trade crisis between the US and China is almost over may be premature. However, the relationship between the US and the China is far from the only issue making life complicated for those in trade in the Asia Pacific region. The region is already home to a number of major multilateral and bilateral trade agreements together with other government relationships such as ASEAN and APEC. There are also a number of less developed economies in the region and many MSMEs are struggling to enter the market and gain the benefits of these trade deals, or the other benefits of trade facilitation and modernization promised by the WTO Trade Facilitation Agreement. This session will be held during the American Bar Association's (ABA) 2020 Virtual Annual Meeting. The panel drawn from the corporate world, private practice, NGOs and international aid agencies will provide their views together with proposals for improvement.
