MIBS Trade Talks to focus on “Triple Threat to Trade”

The National Marine Manufacturers Association said registration is now open for its “Trade Talks” seminar. It will take place on Wednesday, February 13 before the opening of the Miami International Boat Show.

The association said in today’s Currents e-newsletter that the second annual panel-style seminar will provide “insight into the recent changes in trade policy and how they may affect your business: from trade wars to trade deals.”

The session is split into two parts. The first is an interactive Q & A panel session that will focus on the state of trade, highlighting what is happening globally with evolving trade policies and free trade agreements. Discussion will include the new United States–Canada–Mexico Agreement (USMCA) and others under negotiation with the EU, Japan and UK.

The second panel will hear from industry leaders about the “Triple Threat on Trade” and the impact of the trade war on the recreational boating industry. Industry insiders will discuss the rising raw material and component costs and lost export markets.

Registration is available here.
