Stephen Claeys Comments on President Trump’s Trade Talks with EU

July 27, 2018

Stephen J. Claeys, partner in Wiley Rein’s International Trade Practice, was quoted by Law360 in a July 26 article on the Trump Administration’s position regarding the “new phase” of the U.S.-EU trade relationship, after both governments announced they will pursue a new deal to eliminate barriers on industrial goods, among other initiatives.

The White House has said President Trump’s move to pursue a negotiated solution will deliver benefits to both the United States and the European Union, according to the article.

“It’s certainly a positive development, regardless of how you feel about the President’s trade policies overall,” Mr. Claeys told Law360. “As always, the proof is going to be in the pudding. It’s not going to be easy.”
