We expect 2015 to be a big year for trade—and we’ll watched President Obama’s State of the Union Address and subsequent responses closely for the latest news on the Administration’s and Congress' trade policy agenda moving forward.
United States Fashion Industry Association (USFIA) Washington Counsel David Spooner, a partner at Barnes & Thornburg LLP, provided a recap of the address and an update on the trade policy agenda. He provided the latest news on the outlook for key policy initiatives like Trade Promotion Authority (TPA), the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) negotiations, and other items on the Obama Administration’s and 114th Congress’ agenda. Following his presentation, he took several questions from the audience, including both general and specific questions.
