Stephen Claeys Discusses President Trump’s New Trade Policy Agenda

March 3, 2017

Stephen J. Claeys, a partner in Wiley Rein’s International Trade Practice, provided commentary for a March 3 POLITICO Pro article regarding President Trump’s recently issued Trade Policy Agenda.

While the Administration has expressed its intent to focus on bilateral deals moving forward, Mr. Claeys noted that the report left open the potential for plurilateral and multilateral deals as well.

In addition, the domestic agricultural industry may be encouraged by the report’s references to the importance of agricultural exports, Mr. Claeys said. He cited key objectives that aim to protect domestic farmers and agricultural exports from the threat of unfair trade practices.
