A New Administration and a New Trade Policy?
U.S. Trade Policies and their Implications for the Wine Sector

This program will examine the trade policies adopted and executed by recent U.S. presidential administrations – and consider what trade policies might look like under the new Biden/Harris administration, as well as possible implications for the wine trade.
Private practitioners and government officials will provide insights into how Federal and state trade policies – including trade agreements and sanctions – are developed, making special reference to the wine sector, and whether President Biden might continue with the nationalist approach adopted during the Trump administration, return to an earlier liberal economic model, or adopt a combination.
Featured speakers will include:

  • L. Daniel Mullaney, Assistant United States Trade Representative for Europe and the Middle East
  • Ambassador Darci Vetter, Vice Chair for Agriculture, Food and Trade, Edelman, and Former Chief Agricultural Negotiator for the Office of the United States Trade Representative
  • Charles Jefferson, Vice President, Federal and International Public Policy, Wine Institute
  • Robert Tobiassen, President, National Association of Beverage Importers
  • Gary Horlick, Visiting Lecturer in Law at Yale Law School

The program will be free to all AIDV members and to students. This session is not open to the press.
