Government Affairs Roundtable – Section 301 Tariffs and Tariff Exclusions

The US-China trade tensions recently escalated with the US announcement of its decision to impose additional tariffs on $200 billion worth of Chinese imports and China’s response of imposing retaliatory tariffs on $60 billion of US goods. Compared to the first two rounds of tariffs under Section 301, the third round of tariffs, which will take effect starting on September 24, will affect a much wider range of US industries. USCBC will host an event with member companies to discuss the implications of the tariffs for businesses and share views of the US tariff exclusion process. Speakers of the event are Eric Emerson, Partner at Steptoe & Johnson, and Brenda Jacobs, Counsel at Sidley Austin, who will offer their expertise on these issues. 

This event is for members and invited guests of USCBC only. Registration is required.
