President Trump or Candidate Trump? How a New Administration May Affect Bilateral Trade

During a time of transition to a new administration, President-elect Donald Trump’s statements about the US-China commercial relationship raise questions about its future trajectory. The top questions on many minds is whether President Trump will embrace the rhetoric of Candidate Trump to impose a 45 percent tariff on Chinese imports and label China currency manipulator; and if so, what the implications will be.

The US-China Business Council (USCBC) is pleased to partner with member law firm K&L Gates to discuss the election and its implications for US-China relations. USCBC Vice President Jacob Parker will join David Tang, K&L Gates Asia Managing Partner, and other senior legal counsel from K&L Gates to brief USCBC members and the firm’s clients.

The briefing will be followed by Q&A and a cocktail reception. The event will be off the record and media will not be present.
