Lunch Seminar with Greg Rushford: US Trade Policy and the Power of Protectionist Lobbying

May 07 2009
Venue: ECIPE's Office, Rue Belliard 4-6, 7:th floor
Speakers: Greg Rushford
Time: 12:30

One year into the administration of Barack Obama, the world is still waiting for US leadership in trade policy. As policy leadership has been absent, powerful protectionist lobbies have now returned to the centre of US trade policy. Will President Obama challenge them? 

We are pleased to invite you to a lunch seminar with veteran trade journalist Greg Rushford, who will give a Washington insider’s perspective on the politics that help explain President Obama’s unwillingness in his first year in office to lead on trade liberalization. He will talk about the agendas of the usual suspects when it comes to the power of entrenched protectionist lobbies in Washington and their allies on Capitol Hill.

Greg Rushford, who is based in Washington, DC is editor and publisher of the Rushford Report, www.RushfordReport.com, which is an online journal that tracks trade politics and diplomacy. He also is a contributor to several outside publications including the Wall Street Journal Asia, the Milken Institute Review, and the Far Eastern Economic Review. 

RSVP to info@ecipe.org no later than Dec 4

A light lunch will be served
