Trade Policy, tariff rates and other incentives have a tangible impact on determining the landed costs of imported goods. They also influence where and how products are made around the world. This presentation will add context to recent high-profile news such as US Tariffs on certain goods from China and the yet to be implemented US-Mexico-Canada Agreement.
