Quick Question: Tariffs and Trade Disputes

Candidate Donald Trump made no secret of his misgivings about U.S. trade policy.  Like or not, as president he’s made good on his campaign promises, withdrawing from Trans-Pacific Partnership negotiations, challenging the North American Free Trade Agreement, threatening to withdraw the United States from the World Trade Organization and slapping new tariffs on a wide variety of imported of manufactured goods and materials (including a ten percent tariff on aluminum).

The president’s actions have drawn the ire of America’s closest allies and trading partners and let to retaliatory tariffs on U.S. exports. 

Given the globally-integrated nature of the aviation maintenance and manufacturing sector, ARSA wants to know how you think the new wave of protectionism, tariffs and trade disputes will affect your company.
