Breakfast Meeting: US Trade Policy and Transatlantic Relations under Obama

January 14 2009
Speakers: Hugo Paemen, Senior Advisor, Hogan & HartsonnMark McConnell, Partner, Hogan & Hartson
Time: 07:30

The new Obama administration will face the immense challenge of bringing the US out of a recession and helping fix the financial system. Its economic team will soon be in place. As yet, however, it is not very clear where US international economic policy, and in particular its trade policies, will head. The new president has signalled that he wants a new approach in the US’ international cooperation, leading many in the EU to have high hopes for transatlantic relations. The US Congress will be a key factor affecting US leadership in the international economy. What orientations can be expected of the Obama administration in economic and trade policies? Will the US become more protectionist? What will be the role of the US Congress and of different personalities in government? How might transatlantic relations be affected? ECIPE has partnered up with Hogan & Hartson for a joint breakfast meeting to discuss US trade policies and transatlantic relations. Hugo Paemen , Senior Advisor at Hogan and Hartson and former head of the European Commission’s Washington Delegation, and Mark McConnell, Partner at Hogan and Hartson’s Washington’s office, will provide the audience with the latest update and an analysis of US trade policies and transatlantic relations.

The event will be chaired by Fredrik Erixon, Co-Director of ECIPE.
