Master Class: High Performance Trade System Strategies & Tactics
The trade system is big, technical, and complex. Knowing how to use it can put you at a tremendous advantage against your competitors because, if they are like most companies, they aren’t coming close to utilizing the full potential afforded to them through the trade system. This session will show you what high performance trade system maneuvering looks like from one of the key negotiators of TPP and many other recent trade agreements, as well as a recent Undersecretary of Commerce for International Trade in the Obama Administration who helped many companies on the front lines as they navigated the trade system.
While this session is intended to discuss the full power, breadth, depth, and capabilities of the global trade system, it is not exclusively for advanced practitioners of trade. This is to demystify the trade system for companies eager to seek every opportunity and every protection.
