U.S. Maritime Policy under The Biden Administration: Continuity or Change?
Jeff Lawrence, Partner Cozen O’Conor, Washington D.C, Co-Chair of the International Transportation Committee of the ABA International Law Section

William Doyle, Executive Director, Maryland Port Administration – Port of Baltimore

The policies and philosophical approaches of former President Donald Trump and recently sworn-in President Joe Biden are dramatically different. Areas such as international economic policy, environmental and trade regulation, and relations with allies and trading partners are all now in play and poised for change.
The important question for maritime stakeholders will be how the change in Administration will impact the maritime industry.
Our panel of experts, with decades of experience in US maritime policy, can be expected to touch on a diverse list of topics including economic and environmental regulation, Jones Act, infrastructure investment, supply chain challenges, trade, security, and more.
EMLO is delighted to host this special one hour free ranging discussion amongst a unique group of experts to discuss key issues that are central to the future of maritime commerce in the U.S. trades.
