In this uncertain international trade landscape, many companies are asking how they can gain a competitive edge, increase efficiencies, and generate savings. A number of local companies have turned to establishing a Foreign Trade Zone (FTZ), taking advantage of a federal program started in the 1930s to expedite and encourage international trade.

Join the European American Chamber of Commerce and Greater Cincinnati Foreign Trade Zone, Inc. at this informative panel discussion as we discuss what an FTZ is, the implications of tariffs in the current landscape, and what an FTZ operation looks like in implementation.
