Globalization is irreversible and the US will not succeed in changing the global world order by increasing import tariffs. However, A FULL-BLOWN trade war between the US and its key trading partners will disrupt the global supply chain and impact trading volumes, with far-reaching repercussions for Canadian and American retailers, brands and businesses.

It has never been more important to understand trade policy and grand strategy as U.S. President Donald Trump’s economic assault on trading partners continues.  Given rising volatility and uncertainties, a careful and selective strategy is increasingly important.

Join Global Trade Experts Julie Hughes from the United States and Bob Kirke from Canada to better understand how global trade policy is impacting global supply chain strategy.

Julie and Bob will also field questions and discuss:  

  • How the World Trade Organization (WTO) system and the current trade war between the US, Canada, Europe and China and how those rules work
  • How China’s record trade surplus with the United States in June could further inflame the trade disputes with Washington
  • How the world’s major emerging economies could benefit from these global trade tensions.
  • What about the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) and is this impacted?
