U.S. Trade Policy for the Next Administration

November 17, 2020, noon Eastern

Whither U.S. trade policy under the next president and the new Congress?  In the 10th installation of our series on international trade, the National Press Foundation will ask two experts in global trade and a leading journalist to discuss what the election means for trade policy, U.S. trade deals with China, the U.K. and the E.U., and the U.S. relationship with the World Trade Organization.



Edward Alden specializes in U.S. economic competitiveness, trade, and immigration policy at the Council on Fore­­­ign Relations, where he is the Bernard L. Schwartz senior fellow. He is the author of the book Failure to Adjust: How Americans Got Left Behind in the Global Economy.





Mary E. Lovely is senior fellow at the Peterson Institute and professor of economics and Melvin A. Eggers Faculty Scholar at Syracuse University’s Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs. Her June 23 talk at the National Press Foundation can be seen here and her presentation with data for journalists is here.





Lingling Wei is a senior China correspondent for the Wall Street Journal and co-author, with Bob Davis, of Superpower Showdown: How the Battle Between Trump and Xi Threatens a New Cold War.




The briefing will be held on Zoom and journalists who register may ask questions by audio or chat. They can also submit questions for panelists in advance by sending them to Alyssa Black at ablack@nationalpress.org.
