The issue of "fair-trade vs. free-trade" lies at the heart of the debate for most trade agreements. It is an issue that is hotly debated and rightfully so. U.S. globally-minded businesses are carefully watching the new Trump Administration with regard to the future of trade policies, but what can we assume the outcomes will be? With the U.S. now intent on leaving the TPP, won't that put China in charge of global trade deals? If NAFTA is re-worked - what does that mean to U.S. companies - Milwaukee area companies - with operations in Mexico & Canada? More answers will be made clear as we settle in this new year, but in the meantime - what do you foresee happening?
For more insights into the TPP debate, listen to comments from MMAC President Tim Sheehy and M7 Export Development Manager Chad Hoffman.
