VIEW EVENT DETAILS

Corporate Briefing

ASNC, Nixon Peabody and the National Center for APEC are pleased to host Wendy Cutler, Vice President and Managing Director of the Asia Society Policy Institute’s (ASPI) Washington, D.C. office and former Acting Deputy of the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative; Alison Mann, Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade, New Zealand; Eduardo Pedrosa, Secretary General of Pacific Economic Cooperation Council; and Jian Tan, Deputy Director-General of the Department of International Economic Affairs, Ministry of Foreign Affairs, P.R.C. In this high-level corporate briefing, speakers will examine varying trade and investment regimes in the Asia-Pacific, such as the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) and Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP), China’s Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB) and its "One Belt, One Road" policy. How do these agreements and negotiations fit into U.S.’ own “rebalance” to Asia and China’s increasingly robust stance on the international economic stage? What are the future prospects of each? The discussion will also consider the significance of China’s recent economic slowdown and the regional impact of such slowdown on the larger Asian-Pacific economies.
