Register for Nov. 8 Community Chat With Wiley Trade Lawyer Alan Price

Written by Michael Cowden

Wiley partner Alan Price will be the featured speaker on Steel Market Update’s next Community Chat webinar on Wednesday, Nov. 8, at 11 a.m. ET. You can register here.

What We’ll Talk About

We’ll discuss the big issues facing steel when it comes to trade policy:

  • Will the US and EU reach a meaningful agreement on decarbonization in steel and aluminum by year end? Or could Section 232 tariffs, and retaliatory measures by the EU, be re-imposed?
  • How will the two sides square differences between the EU’s carbon border adjustment mechanism (CBAM) and a US-proposed carbon border tax?
  • Could a US-EU agreement on carbon issues provide a template for other US allies – like Japan, South Korea, and the UK?
  • Would the World Trade Organization approve of a US-EU “green steel” club? Does the WTO still matter?
  • How might election year politics – or a change in presidential administrations – impact international talks on decarbonization?
  • What do developments in trade policy and decarbonization mean for steel traders and for people buying and selling steel in the market today?

We’ll take your questions too.

As always, we’ll keep it to about 45 minutes. You can (virtually) drop in, learn something – and then get on with your day. And the webinar is free.
