Seminar: Spooky Stuff: Tariffs, Quotas (and things that go “Trump” in the Night)

  • Smiths Medical 6000 Nathan Lane North Plymouth, Minnesota 55442 United States (map)

Partners John M. Peterson and Maria Celis to speak at Midwest Global Trade Association’s seminar

Program Description:

“Trade wars as easy to win” someone once said. For a lot of MGTA members, though, it’s been life in the trenches for the last few months, and not all that easy. New salvos seem to get fired in the trade war every day, and the shells often explode right in the middle of importers’ and exporters’ supply chains – or markets. And while regular wars are governed by the Geneva Convention, the rules of the trade wars seem to change every day.

MGTA wants to provide a half-day of R&R for the tired troops, so they can learn the latest developments and fortify their defenses. This seminar will provide an overview of the battlefield, and discuss how to work some of the weapons being developed for this combat:

Attendees will not only get valuable insight, but will be awarded the MGTA Battle Cross, the nation’s first (and so far foremost) trade war honor.
