Our Firm is pleased to announce the first webinar in the Sandler Trade LLC Webinar Series. We are excited to share our knowledge and experience with trade professionals, diplomats, and international businesses. The inaugural webinar will unravel the mysteries of the Washington international trade policy alphabet soup and make it digestible for you. We will take you behind the scenes of the interagency trade policy formulation processes and make sure you are ready to follow a busy Fall trade negotiating and legislative agenda. After this webinar you will be able to understand the following passage:
“The TPSC is pressing forward with TPP, TTIP, and TISA negotiations and, after consultation with ITACs and IFACs, will start to bring issues to the TPRG and the NEC Deputies Group. Work also continues under the TIFAs, the S&ED, and Special 301. In the meantime, Ways and Means and Finance will need to grapple with GSP, ATPDEA and TAA, while they debate the substance of TPA.”
The webinar will provide a detailed overview of Executive Branch mechanisms for formulating and executing international trade policy, and of the upcoming legislative agenda. Attendees will come away with a solid understanding of the legal and organizational foundations for trade policy formulation and the intra- and extra-governmental structures that support it. Topics in the seminar include:
- Legal foundations (Trade Acts and Executive Orders…)
- Interagency structures (TPSC, TPRG, NEC…)
- Private sector and Congressional roles (ITACs, IFACs…)
- International negotiations (FTAs, TIFAs, S&ED…)
- Upcoming legislative agenda (TPA, TAA, GSP…)
- Resources and links you should know about
