In an effort to compel China to conclude a deal on its intellectual property (IP) practices, President Trump recently increased punitive tariffs from 10 percent to 25 percent on $200 billion worth of products sourced from China, including backpacks, sports bags, leather ski gloves, headwear, kayaks and camp chairs. Now he has called for another round of tariffs that will place an additional import tax of “up to 25 percent” on all outdoor apparel, footwear and sporting goods, significantly raising costs for outdoor companies and consumers and dealing another blow to the outdoor recreation economy. Join us for an important discussion on the impact of increased tariffs on your business and how your business can respond.

In this webinar you will learn the following:

  • Why the administration is proposing additional tariffs on products from China
  • What outdoor products are impacted
  • When the new tariffs could go into effect
  • How you can help OIA exempt outdoor products from these tariffs and future tariffs
