Maine Pointe CEO Steve Bowen was quoted noting how these new realities are changing how companies look at their total supply chain. Steve notes that companies are finding new suppliers, offering an example of one manufacturer which uses steel products from China, but is now looking for a European supplier. Still, companies that rely on sophisticated and high-tech manufacturing may find it difficult to move production to other countries, regardless of tariffs.

Maine Pointe CEO Steve Bowen made his fifth appearance on TD Ameritrade Network’s "Morning Trade Live" show, delivering insights into the current tariff situation and potential for another government shutdown. While it's difficult to predict, Steve said there is a spectrum of possibilities between "no deal" and free trade, with the likely outcome being somewhere in between.

In the current climate of “economic populism,” tit-for-tat tariffs and the uncertainties surrounding Brexit, which can instigate trade wars and the disruption of global trade deals in Europe and the Pacific rim, buyers, sellers and their supply chains have an opportunity to step up and cope with major challenges through cooperation, transparency and flexibility.

The North American oil and gas industry, despite numerous challenges, has a bright future for the next 30 years, although several mitigating factors need to be addressed to meet growth targets. While tariffs, trade wars, and China’s energy policy both present major considerations that must be dealt with, other factors include an eroding skill set, a push towards renewables and alternative energy, a need to adapt refineries to meet new decarbonization and desulfurization policies, and increased demand from the developing world.
