The U.S. and China will have a full plate of trade-related issues to discuss at the 25th meeting of the Joint Commission on Commerce and Trade, which will be held Dec. 16-18 in Chicago. This annual meeting will review progress made by working groups that meet throughout the year to address topics such as intellectual property rights, agriculture, pharmaceuticals and medical devices, information technology, and travel and tourism.

A joint press release from the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative and the Commerce Department states that at the last JCCT meeting, held in Beijing on Dec. 19-20, 2013, “significant progress” was made on issues such as protection and enforcement against theft of trade secrets, government procurement, market access for U.S. testing and certification companies, and market access for U.S. beef.
