With globalization and the formalization of numerous trade agreements has come explosive growth in world-wide trade. Deep experience at the highest levels is required to understand both the institutional nature of the WTO, GATT, NAFTA, the European Single Market Program, and APTA, as well as the economic implications of the many bilateral trade agreements that exist between countries. OnPoint’s experts have that experience, both through their academic research and through their work on trade policy and trade disputes. Many of these trade disputes relate to agricultural and commodity products, a field in which OnPoint offers several of the most respected economists in the world.
