With the first 100 days behind us, what can business expect on tax, trade, tech, and climate change from this Biden Administration? What do Cabinet appointments reveal about his policy priorities?

Joe Biden entered the White House with an ambitious agenda at time of extraordinary crisis. Not only is his Administration dealing with a once-in-a-century pandemic as a top priority, but the 46th President and his team are taking on the climate change crisis and the economic crisis with a bitterly divided electorate.  One of the first actions he took was to re-join the Paris Agreement and the World Health Organisation to re-establish the USA’s role in and support of multilateral organisations. Should businesses expect profound reform, symbolic moves, or something in between?

The 100-day mark of a new presidency is always a milestone, a moment to reflect on whether the start bodes well for the President’s legislative and regulatory agenda. The panel we have convened will take a closer look at upcoming tax policies, climate change action, tech reform, and economic stimulus plans. We thank EY for their support in leading this panel:
