Trade compliance professionals face significant uncertainty stemming from current U.S. trade policy and emerging technologies. Political support for trade liberalization is waning while the industry appears to be at the cusp of yet another technological revolution which will further integrate the global economy. AAEI’s 2018 Annual Conference will explore how these trends converge to impact the future of global trade and provide attendees with the latest information, thought leadership on policy choices, and compliance strategies to deal with the current trade environment.
