Read Frequently Asked Questions

This trade webinar will cover existing and pending RTAs, the opportunities and challenges they present for your business, the new rules and procedures and how you can comply with them. It will discuss major RTAs involving the US and the EU and opportunities for exporters of goods.

Why Should You Attend:

The growing network of regional trade agreements provides both opportunities and challenges to companies as they expand internationally. RTAs facilitate international business by lowering the barriers to the cross-border flow of goods and services. In 2010, 41% of U.S. goods were exported to a country with which the U.S. has signed a trade agreement. RTAs also bring with them new rules and procedures with which companies must comply in order to fully access their benefits.
