On September 12, 2016, President Barack Obama signed a proclamation which will reinstitute Burma’s eligibility for benefits under the Generalized System of Preferences (GSP) program as of November 13, 2016. "This action comes after the conclusion of a review of Burma’s compliance with the eligibility criteria under GSP statute, including whether Burma is taking steps to afford internationally-recognized worker rights," stated a press release by the Office of the United States Trade Representative.

This August, students will begin returning to classes for the 2022-2023 school year. Let's look at some interesting facts about schooling in the US to get those brains back in action!
Last month, Laurie Arnold, VP Compliance, and Leah Ellis, Compliance Operations Manager, went on a trip to Laredo, TX to visit our LRD branch. They spent part of their week in the Laredo office, discussing compliance topics and JAS policies on statements, training, auditing, and duty payments with branch Customs Broker Gustavo Aldrete and the import team.
On July 12th, Laurie and Leah braved the record-breaking high temperatures to visit the World Trade International bridge that spans Laredo, TX and Nuevo Laredo, Tamaulipas on the Northern Mexican border. Here they developed a better understanding of the border crossing process and got to watch the cargo trucks as they brought their shipments into and out of the country.
Towards the end of their trip, they celebrated Branch Manager Antonio Pastrana’s birthday and enjoyed some cake with the Laredo team.
