The webinar noted that the new era of administration may bring about some committee changes, whereas many seats are likely to remain the same. These changes and consistencies could potentially impact policies. The recycling industry’s contributions to greenhouse gas emission reductions could make it a target while formulating new climate change policy.

Meantime, the webinar noted that Biden is unlikely to engage in any trade decision in a hurry. Most probably, he will wait for domestic trade situation to stabilize. The trade expects new approach to China-related trade policies.
