Donnelly Talks NAFTA and U.S. Trade Policy in Louisville

Shaun Donnelly

USCIB Vice President for Investment Policy Shaun Donnelly traveled to Kentucky last week to speak to the Louisville Committee on Foreign Relations (LCFR) on “NAFTA and U.S. Trade Policy in the Trump Era.”  Donnelly’s speech drew upon USCIB’s strong public positions on the NAFTA renegotiation, the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) and U.S. global trade leadership in the World Trade Organization and beyond.

“The LCFR’s well-attended monthly dinner meeting generated considerable discussion with the audience and a broad consensus that the U.S. government should be working to update and strengthen NAFTA, not threatening to gut it or withdraw,” said Donnelly.

With major companies like UPS, Humana, and Yum Brands having headquarters or major hubs in Louisville plus leading U.S. distillers as well as key members of the Distilled Spirits Council of the U.S. (DISCUS) in the region, Louisville is significantly integrated into the global economy and NAFTA.  And the membership of the LCFR certainly understands that.
