U.S. Trade Policy and Your Business: A Webinar for IPC MembersJune 26, 2018 | IPC
Estimated reading time: Less than a minute
As you’ve seen in the news, the Trump Administration has established an aggressive trade agenda, with significant developments occurring almost daily. Many of these developments will impact the electronics industry. For example, an additional 25% tariff on more than 800 Chinese products is scheduled to go into effect on July 6. Those tariffs disproportionately target the electronics supply chain. Likewise, new duties and countervailing duties on aluminum will also increase costs for U.S. manufacturers, including the U.S. printed circuit board industry. The IPC Government Relations team is monitoring these developments and weighing in with policy makers.
IPC members, please join us for a U.S. trade policy webinar on Friday, June 29 at 11:00 am EDT featuring trade law practitioners Nova Daly and Tim Brightbill of Wiley Rein LLP. They will discuss both the recent or proposed imposition of new tariffs as well as proposed investment restrictions to be announced later this month.
This free informational webinar is designed to help you make sense of the dizzying pace of trade developments and the impact these developments may have on your business.

It’s easy to get distracted in an election year. A constant stream of polls, primaries, and political prognostications will surely dominate the media cycle. Elections are important, but they should not distract the 118th Congress from the important work of securing our fragile supply chains and rebuilding microelectronics manufacturing capacity on our own shores.
IPC’s efforts in government relations and advocacy have been pivotal in getting legislation like the CHIPS Act passed. In February, IPC President and CEO Dr. John W. Mitchell was back in Washington, D.C., representing our industry in a meeting convened by the U.S. Department of Commerce, where he discussed workforce issues in our industry and how to ensure that our businesses have the workforce they need. In this audio interview, he reviews his concerns and solutions on workforce development.
