USCIB’s Mulligan Weighs in on Asia Trade in Wharton Journal

As the Trump administration moves to shift the focus of U.S. trade policy away from larger multilateral pacts and toward bilateral deals, USCIB Senior Vice President for Policy and Government Affairs Rob Mulligan was cited in a Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania online business journal Knowledge@Wharton in an article titled “Bilateral or Multilateral: Which Trade Partnerships Work Best?

Mulligan was quoted emphasizing the importance of the Asia-Pacific region for USCIB’s membership, saying, “Our hope is that [the U.S.] will pursue some other approach that will continue to open those markets and ensure that U.S. companies are able to compete and have access in those markets. The multilateral approach, we generally felt, had advantages [in] that you could get many countries at one time… [A] lot of U.S. businesses benefit from the global rules-based trade system.”
