US trade policy: From Trump to Biden, restoration, rehabilitation, renovation and remodeling

Candidate Biden campaigned under the slogan "Build Back Better" and in his first days in office, President Biden issued numerous executive orders and policy pronouncements drawing a demarcation line with the Trump administration. This webinar will examine the Biden administration's plans to build new international trade policies, return to policies in place before the Trump administration, and improve certain Trump administration policies. Our panelists will introduce the changes that will set the stage for international trade between Japan and the US going forward.



  • US-Asia trade relations, Japan, China and beyond
  • Continuity and change in CFIUS reviews under Biden
  • Priorities for economic sanctions
  • Section 232, Section 301, and unilateralism
  • US role at the WTO
  • Prospects for a US return to the CPTPP or other free trade agreements
