In early November, RILA's International Trade & Customs committees held a joint meeting in Washington, D.C. The committees are comprised of a mix of government relations professionals based in D.C., as well as customs and trade specialists and attorneys from around the country.
Attendees discussed a range of trade issues, ranging from the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) agreement
to trade enforcement. In addition, committee members heard from administration officials and congressional policy experts on customs reauthorization, human trafficking, TPP and the pending congressional approval process, and the current political climate on trade. Committee members also participated in a member advocacy panel, and larger advocacy and benchmarking discussion.
The next RILA International Trade & Customs Committee Meeting will take place next year in Washington, D.C. If you would like any more information on the RILA International Trade or Customs committees, please contact Hun Quach, vice president of international trade, at firstname.lastname@example.org
