U.S. Customs and Border Protection has emphasized the proactive and strict enforcement of U.S. trade laws to protect national economic security, facilitate fair trade and ensure a level playing field for U.S. industry. Many companies seeking what appears to be a hospitable environment are exploring opportunities in Mexico to avoid various duty impacts the U.S. would otherwise impose if the imported goods are of Chinese origin. Meanwhile, national security concerns are at the forefront of United States export policy, especially in light of the war in Ukraine.
In this webinar we will discuss latest enforcement trends in the U.S. and options for mitigating this risk, including any opportunities Mexico can offer.
