In March 2018, President Trump imposed a 25% duty on steel and a 10% duty on aluminum. Most countries are covered by these tariffs but some have negotiated quotas with the United States. National security tariffs are now looming for automobiles and auto parts, and section 232 investigations are underway for uranium and titanium sponge.
Two expert panels will examine:
The arcane law and its limits as tested by litigation.
Proposed legislation to restrict the President’s authority.
The steel and aluminum tariffs and the product exclusion process, and how these have impacted US manufacturers and global supply chains.
The effect of such tariffs on the auto industry.
The impact on the negotiation of free trade agreements.
