ICIS will provide up-to-date coverage including news, insight and analysis on how Donald Trump's presidency will impact chemical markets across the world.

The new president followed through with his campaign hard line, withdrawing the US from the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade deal during his first week in office. Trump also vows to renegotiate the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). Clashes on trade with Mexico, China, South Korea and Japan – countries with large trade surpluses with the US – are all more likely.
