US-China-Japan Trade Relations 

in the New World Order

March 1, 2018

4:30 pm - 7:00 pm

Port of Seattle Headquarters

U.S. withdrawal from the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) trade agreement has potentially cost Washington state businesses significant new market opening opportunities in the Asia Pacific. The U.S. administration has instead indicated its plans to pursue bilateral trade agreements, including with Japan. As the Comprehensive Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP) – renamed version of TPP – moves forward without the U.S., the White House’s proposals for bilateral agreements could have significant implications for trade and investment strategies of Washington businesses and more broadly, future multilateral approaches.


The panel discussion aims to address the following policy questions:

  • In an increasingly fragmented, complicated trade policy environment, what approaches would offer Washington businesses and other stakeholders the greatest opportunities related to China and their regional supply chains?
  • What are the implications for seaports, maritime security, and logistics management?
  • Which policy options may not be advantageous, or potentially have a negative impact on Washington State?
