YTP: Crisis at the West Coast Ports: How are Imports and Exports being Impacted?

02/10/2015 at 6:30 PM (US/Eastern)
Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center-Meridian Suite 1300 Pennsylvania Avenue NW Washington, DC 20004
YTP is pleased to welcome Jon Gold (National Retail Federation) and Peter Friedmann (Agriculture Transportation Coalition) for a roundtable discussion on what is currently America’s largest trade barrier— the inability to efficiently move imports and exports through West Coast ports. Join us for a fascinating conversation on how trade actually moves from boat to port to truck to store, and how businesses and consumers are at risk when it does not flow efficiently. Learn how the current crisis has been impacting the retail and agriculture sectors, and how the situation could lead to a global shift in trading patterns.
