Cross-Border Industry Relations

IAS helps foster cross-border industry cooperation by organizing international study missions for businesses, industry associations, and investors. We also conduct seminars and advise companies on antidumping issues.

  • To promote better mutual understanding and working relationships, IAS organized and led nine study missions to China for various groups in the steel sector. Additional missions are planned to China, India and other countries.
  • As a government relations advisor to an integrated North American trade association, IAS has provided analytical support and strategic advice to the Canadian and US members and has assisted in lobbying both the American and the Canadian governments on trade and competitiveness issues.
