Washington Update: October – November 2014

The USCIB Washington Office has been especially busy in the last two months hosting an inaugural OECD/USCIB/BIAC Trade and Investment Conference and the USCIB Annual International Leadership Award Dinner, which occurred for the first time in Washington, DC. Ambassador Michael Froman (USTR) spoke at both of those events, and the dinner also featured remarks by the honoree WTO Director General Roberto Azevedo, as well as U.S. Customs and Border Protection Commissioner Gil Kerlikowske and Congressman Peter Roskam (IL-6), among others. These events took place between travel to Korea, France, the UK, Belgium, Switzerland, Austria and China; meetings with representatives of the B20/G20 from the U.S., Australia and Turkey, as well as with Ambassador Daniel Sepulveda of the State Department, Bob Stack of Treasury, Ed Brzytwa, Director of APEC Affairs at the United States Trade Representative, and Anne Carblanc of the OECD; and presentations at the Inter-American Development Bank, the World Investment Forum, the UN Committee of Tax Experts, and the APEC Leaders’ Summit.
