Since 1981, Washington Tariff & Trade Letter (WTTL) has been the authoritative source of news and analysis of Washington trade policies, trade laws, export controls, international negotiations and legislation. In 50 weekly reports, WTTL cuts through the rhetoric and jargon of trade policymakers to deliver the "bottom-line" information you need to survive in the global trade environment. WTTL goes behind the scenes to uncover trade news before it becomes news. It strives to give you the earliest possible warning to changing trade regulations, laws and negotiations that could impact your international sales and investments.
Each issue of WTTL is packed with valuable reports on:
- Progress of antidumping, countervailing duty and Section 201 cases at the ITA, ITC and CIT
- U.S. negotiating positions and new developments in such multilateral talks as the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) and trade complaints at the World Trade Organization
- Bilateral trade disputes with key trading partners such as China, Canada, Japan, Mexico and the European Union
- Drafting, hearings, debate and enactment of trade legislation in Congress
- Changing U.S. export controls and trade sanction requirements at the Commerce, State and Treasury departments
