It was a great pleasure to have Mr. Barry Rhoads, the Chairman of Cassidy & Associates – the largest lobbying firm in Washington — return to my seminar. He gave an overview of US trade and the exposure of importers under the trade policy of the Trump administration. As to be expected – an excellent and in-depth analysis, accompanied by forecasts of the 2018 midterm elections.
It was a great pleasure to have Martha Lawless (left side), chief of the Services Industry Research Division at the U.S. International Trade Commission, return to my seminar. Ms. Lawless focused on the latest global regulatory and policy measures in digital trade. She particularly highlighted the rapid emergence of digitally enabled services and manufacturing.
