Trade Agreements: Developing a Working Knowledge of FTAs and How Companies are Using Them
Where the Trade System Masterclass focuses on what it looks like to fully leverage every opportunity that the trade system gives you (and thereby give ideas about how you can find competitive advantages and protections), this session takes that full spectrum showcase down to the working level for most companies. How do you weigh doing business in countries with trade agreements with the US versus countries that do not have them? What is the real difference an FTA makes? And how can you use this information to make better decisions for setting up your international operations?
