Honoring Roberto Azevêdo
World Trade Organization
United States Trade Representative
We are pleased to announce that Ambassador Michael Froman will give remarks at our 2014 International Leadership Award Dinner.
As U.S. Trade Representative, Ambassador Froman is President Obama’s principal advisor, chief negotiator and representative on international trade and investment issues. He leads the Office of the United States Trade Representative in its work to open global markets for U.S. goods and services, unlock opportunities for Americans, enforce America’s rights in the global trading system and foster development through trade.
Last year was a watershed moment for global trade, as World Trade Organization members concluded a long-awaited global agreement on trade facilitation at their Bali Ministerial. While the agreement has run into roadblocks, global business continues to press for its swift implementation. Join USCIB members and friends as we honor the primary architect of the agreement, WTO Director General Roberto Azevêdo, at our 2014 International Leadership Award Dinner, held for the first time in our nation’s capital.
We hope you will join us on November 19, 2014 at the Four Seasons in Washington, D.C. for a truly memorable evening.
