How to approach the American market following the elections?

Since 20 January, the United States has begun taking its first steps under the Biden administration. This new era promises a more favourable climate for international trade relations. That’s why we’ll be surrounding ourselves with exceptional speakers via a webinar to discuss the economic outlook of the post-Trump United States and the business opportunities it has to offer. Join us on 23 February at 4:00 pm (Belgian time).

Law firms, consultants, manufacturers, producers and traders, large and small companies…regardless of your profile or business sector, this informational webinar is intended for all entrepreneurs entering the American market.
