Steptoe’s International Trade and Investment Group is excited to announce the launch of its Global Trade Policy Blog. The blog will cover trade remedies, trade policy, investor-state arbitration, customs, trade negotiations and the World Trade Organization (WTO), and will provide information on developments in the United States, the EU and in jurisdictions around the world. The blog is intended to help companies understand developments in all of these areas, so that they can avoid disruption to their business activities in an increasingly uncertain regulatory and commercial environment.

The Steptoe Global Trade Policy Blog’s first post is an in-depth analysis of the likely US trade policy of President-elect Biden and what that policy might mean for US and non-US companies. The blog also has information on judicial challenges to President Trump’s decision to impose duties on solar products, a recently initiated investigation on Vietnam’s timber and currency practices, and the EU’s announcement of an on-line international trade tool.
