U.S. Trade Policy and Your Business: A Webinar for IPC Members


Reading time ( words)

As you’ve seen in the news, the Trump Administration has established an aggressive trade agenda, with significant developments occurring almost daily. Many of these developments will impact the electronics industry. For example, an additional 25% tariff on more than 800 Chinese products is scheduled to go into effect on July 6. Those tariffs disproportionately target the electronics supply chain. Likewise, new duties and countervailing duties on aluminum will also increase costs for U.S. manufacturers, including the U.S. printed circuit board industry. The IPC Government Relations team is monitoring these developments and weighing in with policy makers.

IPC members, please join us for a U.S. trade policy webinar on Friday, June 29 at 11:00 am EDT featuring trade law practitioners Nova Daly and Tim Brightbill of Wiley Rein LLP. They will discuss both the recent or proposed imposition of new tariffs as well as proposed investment restrictions to be announced later this month.

This free informational webinar is designed to help you make sense of the dizzying pace of trade developments and the impact these developments may have on your business.
