Trade Turbulence: The View From Canada and Europe


Get Directions

#var:page_name# cover

It's a new environment for global trade. NAFTA is being rejiggered. Europe escaped Trump's metal tariffs, but issues like privacy and tax are still causing rifts in the relationship. With protectionism on the rise, it's unclear whether we're headed for light scuffle or an all-out trade war.

In Georgia, international business is largely linked to North American and European investors and trading partners. Canada is the top export destination for Georgia, and Germany is the No. 2 import market.

With that in view, how are European and Canadian investors, which rely on global supply chains, responding to this newfound uncertainty?

Join the Cumming-Forsyth Chamber of Commerce in partnership with Global Atlanta as we convene expert speakers over lunch to explore these issues and more:

Opening Keynote: Mary Waters, Deputy Commissioner, International Trade, Georgia Department of Economic Development
