House Ways and Means Committee Holds Hearing on 2020 Trade Policy Agenda
The U.S. is also in the process of negotiating a trade agreement with the United Kingdom which includes a review of public comments, a public hearing, and extensive consultations with congressional and trade advisory committees. A new trade relationship with Kenya is also a key priority for the administration.
Other notable plans for U.S. trade policy in 2020 include rebalancing a trade relationship with the European Union and work towards more comprehensive agreements with Japan and China. More broadly, the Trump administration’s biggest priorities are focused on American protectionism in terms of American business and workers. The administration seeks to increase job growth, especially in manufacturing and farming to that end.
