Every week seems to bring more uncertainty from Washington, D.C. as manufacturers seek clarity on the trade wars, a solution to worker shortages, and relief from government regulations.
PMPA’s Washington, D.C. lobbyist, Omar S. Nashashibi, will provide a unique insight about the latest on tariffs, trade negotiations, regulations and workforce training. This is your chance to get past the media spin and hear directly from a Washington insider about how these actions impact not only your business but also your customers and supply chains. With the 2020 elections already underway, Omar will provide insight and analysis you can take back to your shops to help make sense of it all.

Having represented manufacturing associations in Washington since 2002, he is an expert on trade policy and tariffs, taxes, regulatory compliance, job training, and supply chain risk analysis. Omar has over twenty years of experience working with policymakers, politicians, and the media.
