In today’s burgeoning global economy, countries that strive to grow and prosper must expedite the flow of legitimate commerce, while simultaneously ensuring supply chain resilience in times of disaster, disruption or service failures. To achieve these goals with respect to cross-border trade, U.S. Customs and Border Protection has implemented a series of initiatives, collectively coined as “Trade Transformation.” These include, among others, ACE, Trade Partnerships, the Centers of Excellence and Expertise and the Role of the Customs Broker. This presentation will “tell it like it is” from the viewpoint of trade counsel.

Who Should Attend:

Anyone who is involved in importing merchandise into the U.S.
