Since taking office on 20 January, Donald Trump has swiftly taken action to fulfill some of his promises during the election campaign by issuing executive orders.

As emphasized in the U.S. President's inauguration speech, the idea of "America first" has started to materialize in his executive orders and statements. Trump called the withdrawal of the U.S. from the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade deal "a great thing for the American worker." Other ideas include reviving the Keystone XL pipeline and Dakota Access pipelines on the promise it will create 28,000 jobs, and attempting to ban visitors from certain Muslim countries. He has also ordered agencies to first abolish two regulations if they wish to introduce a new one, which aims to help reduce regulatory burden on SMEs.

As his policies are starting to be put into place, how will Trump's administration change global trade and investment? What will be the potential impact on businesses in Hong Kong and the Mainland? Stephen Olson, Research Fellow, Hinrich Foundation, will share his insights on the potential impact of Trump's policies on U.S. trade relations. Dr Glenn Shive, Executive Director, The Hong Kong-America Center, will speak about the evolving political issues around TPP and trade with Asia in the United States.
