When Politics and Trade Collide

Steve Okun, CEO, APAC Advisors 


About the Event

The shifting political, social and governmental environment in the United States was not created by Donald Trump -- but it enabled him to get elected. Coupled with the realization that China was not going to become more like the US, a consensus developed across both political parties and the business community that the US needs a different, more confrontational approach to China.

Join Steve Okun for a presentation and interactive discussion on the state of US politics, what to watch for in the Democratic nomination process and how the Presidential campaign will impact US-China trade tensions -- and how it will not.
