In this virtual discussion, Kathleen Claussen will share insights from a recent paper she co-authored on the Rapid Response Labor Mechanism (RRM), including takeaways about its use and effectiveness during the first three years of the USMCA. Given the importance of the RRM to the USMCA, and the potential for use of this model in other U.S. trade agreements, this is a conversation you won’t want to miss!
This event will be hosted by GATT DC. A link to join the virtual discussion will be sent to all those who RSVP. Please RSVP HERE.
