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.
