The US presidential election is not just about consolidating or switching the seats of power – it also has a significant impact on trade relations for companies trading with the US.
During the Trump administration, former President Donald Trump made bold moves with his trade policy: introducing tariffs on Chinese imports, steel and aluminium imports from the UK, EU and Japan, withdrawing from the Trans-Pacific Partnership, and threatening to do the same from the WTO.
When incumbent President Joe Biden won the election in 2021, there was a sense of stability on the horizon. Biden proclaimed that the US would “write the [trade] rules of the road for the world”. However, years later, he’s been criticised for keeping trade policy at a standstill and lacking strategy.
So, what’s down the road? How will the 2024 election play into and determine the future of trading with the US?
This CBS Executive Education webinar will explore both international and Danish relations with the world’s second-largest trading nation. We’ll examine the prospects, consider the election outcome, and discuss how this will affect Danish companies.
