Senators Chris Coons and James Lankford on Tariffs and Trade, and Panel Discussion on Impacts of the Trade War

06/13/2019 at 9:00 AM (US/Eastern)
Horizon Ballroom | Ronald Reagan Building & International Trade Center 1300 Pennsylvania Avenue NW, Washington DC 20004

Senators James Lankford (R-OK) and Chris Coons (D-DE) have made a name for themselves for their friendship and willingness to work across the aisle on issues of importance to their states and the nation. 

Please join WITA as we discuss their views on the use of tariffs as leverage in trade disputes and negotiations, and their legislation, the Import Tax Relief Act – which creates an exclusion process from tariffs on Chinese goods, and is meant to provide relief to American consumers, farmers and firms impacted by the tariffs.

Following the Senators’ presentation, we will have a short panel discussion of the effect tariffs and other trade policies are having on U.S. firms, farmers, workers and employers.

Panel Discussion Featuring

Laura M. Baughman, President of The Trade Partnership and Trade Partnership Worldwide, LLC

Guy Harari, President, Adisseo North & Central America

Eric Wenberg, Executive Director, Specialty Soya and Grains Alliance

Moderator: Nicole Bivens Collinson, President, International Trade and Government Relations, Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg, P.A.
