Politico Unveils Trade Coverage

Hang onto your hats. Politico will launch a third new Pro coverage for the fall. On Wednesday, Politico Pro Trade will join Pro Education and Pro Agriculture.

A press release says “Pro Trade will offer subscribers high-impact, high-velocity coverage of trade news, delivering customizable real-time developments and analysis as well as access to a must-read Morning Trade newsletter.” Doug Palmer, who has been reporting for Reuters for the past 15 years, will be the Senior Trade Reporter, and will be joined by Deputy Agriculture and Trade Editor Matthew Korade from CQ; Adam Beshudi from Inside U.S. Trade and Eric Bradner from the Evansville (Ind.) Courier & Press. 

Jason Huffman, who is editor of Pro Agriculture, will lead the team.

Pro Trade will focus on the Trans-Pacific Partnership and the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership, while covering trade relations with China, intellectual property, cyber property and the electronic and auto industries.

After the debut of Pro Trade tomorrow, Politico Pro will feature 10 policy sections and employ more than 75 journalists.
