CBP Today-Challenges, Priorities and Opportunities

George Weise, former Commissioner of the U.S. Customs Service, will share his perspective in this keynote address on how CBP has evolved since its creation and the uncertainty surrounding the new Administration's trade policy. He will discuss the significant challenges the organization is confronting today and the priorities CBP has established to tackle those challenges. George's remarks will help the audience better relate to the challenges facing CBP, provide recommendations on how the trade community can be successful in this unsettled environment and serve as a constructive step for participants to develop an effective strategy to identify opportunities in this new environment.
