The latest event in the East Asia Now Series, “Decoupling the U.S.-China trade relationship: The Challenges and Opportunities of a New Economic Order,” explored U.S.-China trade developments in relation to the Midwest and beyond. This virtual luncheon drew on the knowledge of trade and policy experts, including U.S. Representative Ron Kind of Wisconsin, a member of the House Ways and Means Trade Subcommittee, to address these issues.

The event discussed the impact of U.S.-China trade relations on a number of areas, including agriculture, supply chain issues, the Olympics, geopolitical stability, and an overall cost-benefit analysis of decoupling versus continued engagement. C0-organized by the Wisconsin Technology Council, the Center for East Asian Studies (CEAS), and Latin American, Caribbean and Iberian Studies (LACIS), the event is also part of the + Trade Policy Initiative sponsored by Michael Best Strategies and the Wisconsin District Export Council.
