Date: January 04, 2017

Thompson Hine’s International Trade & Customs practice group has launched a dedicated microsite to monitor the international trade policy developments of President-elect Trump’s administration and track the status and implementation of his key campaign positions.

  • Analysis of the President-elect’s campaign pledges regarding new U.S. trade policies.
  • Useful biographical information on the officials appointed to key international trade positions within the executive branch and the administration, and updates on their progress toward confirmation.
  • Status reports on the implementation of Trump’s trade priorities during his first 100 days in office.
  • Comparisons of Trump’s campaign promises with his enacted policies.
  • Timely alerts and bulletins on the new administration's major trade policy developments.
