About The Webinar

The 118th Congress includes many changes, particularly in the trade space. The House of Representatives has a new speaker with different priorities, and in the Ways and Means Committee there’s a new chairman and a change in the balance of power with fresh Republican members. Democrats maintain a narrow majority in the Senate, but the Finance Committee has three new Republican members, all of whom come with their own priorities and agendas. Changes in these and other relevant committees, such as Foreign Relations and Foreign Affairs, will influence the direction of U.S. trade policy.

Key Topics

  • House and Senate leadership changes
  • Committee leadership changes
  • Potential influence of new majority
  • Trade legislation that remains outstanding
