Each year the Trade and Investment Committee of the U.S. Council for International Business (USCIB) conducts an extensive consultation process among members in identifying priorities for the coming year. The 2020 USCIB Trade and Investment Agenda includes a list of key principles our members support for open trade and investment and an action plan for addressing our trade and investment policy priorities.
The action plan anticipates another busy year on trade and investment including:
- pressing for final approval and implementation of USMCA,
- seeking Administration action on phase 2 agreements with China and Japan,
- supporting movement on trade negotiations with the EU and UK,
- seeking continued progress on negotiations in the WTO on a digital trade agreement and
- modernizing the WTO.
“The Agenda provides the framework for USCIB work to advance policies and negotiations that will open international markets for our member companies and strengthen the global rules-based trade and investment framework,” said USCIB Senior Vice President for Policy and Government Affairs Rob Mulligan.
