Forgue Speaks on Nearshoring, Reshoring, and Their Trade Compliance Challenges
October 24, 2014
Barnes/Richardson partner David Forgue will discuss the topic Nearshoring, Reshoring and Their Compliance Challenges at the International Trade Club of Chicago’s Import/Export Workshop on October 24, 2014. The Workshop will start go from 9:00 to Noon and will be held at DePaul University’s O’Hare Campus (8770 W. Bryn Mawr Ave., Chicago). The Workshop is available either in person, or as a webinar.
As used in the Workshop, nearshoring is the movement of manufacturing processes from abroad to the NAFTA (or maybe even the DR-CAFTA) region. Typically this means moving from Asia to North America. Reshoring is the movement of manufacturing processes from abroad to the United States. Again, this is typically from Asia to the United States. David has written about different aspects of this process, including the prospect for job growth from reshoring and the likelihood that reshoring will lead to a net increase in imports into the United States. This Workshop will focus on the practical compliance consequences of nearshoring and reshoring.
