Event Details

The escalating trade war between the United States and China, in which President Trump last month introduced tariffs on an additional $200 billion in Chinese imports, has spawned a boom in “creative” workarounds used by manufacturers, retailers and brand owners in China.

Among the tactics currently being deployed are so-called transshipments of Chinese products to places like Malaysia, Vietnam, Philippines, and Sri Lanka to be relabeled with a new country of origin and then exported to the United States. Likewise, shipments from the United States bound for China have already been reported being rerouted through Canada and Vietnam to avoid the tariffs.

This exclusive webinar will delve into the implications of the escalating trade war on supply chain, logistics, sourcing and manufacturing operations in China.

Confirmed speakers include:

Greg Hutchins
Founder & Director

Aleksandra (Sasha) Stasevich
Director of Operations
Blacksmith International

Adams Lee
Harris Bricken 



The webinar and the discussions will be moderated by GSCC's Founder Max Henry.
