Trade & Development – Renewing AGOA, GSP and HOPE/HELP for Haiti

Wednesday, July 10, 2024 at 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM (EST)
WITA Webinar WITA Online Event

Please join WITA as we discuss the intersection of trade and development policy, and the use of American soft-power to promote U.S. interests.

Panelists will discuss the prospects for renewal of the Generalized System of Preferences – a critical program for the U.S. in Southeast Asia, the Middle East, southeastern Europe, South America, and the Pacific Islands – which lapsed in 2020; as well as AGOA, and HOPE/HELP for Haiti, which both expire in 2025.
