Executive Briefing | Wendy Cutler on TPP, Trump and TradeVIEW EVENT DETAILS
Asia Society Policy Institute's Vice President comes to Sydney
Join Asia Society Australia and National Australia Bank for an Executive Briefing luncheon with Asia Society Policy Institute Vice President, Wendy Cutler on the TPP, Trump and Trade.
One year after the U.S. pulled out of the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), governments across the Asia-Pacific are reassessing their reliance on American economic leadership and the U.S. market. Most notably, the remaining eleven TPP countries have taken the initiative to advance the agreement without the United States, and seek to finalize the deal in early 2018. As a former senior trade negotiator for the US Trade Representative Office, Wendy will update members on what we can expect in 2018.
This visit follows the recent release of ASPI report “Shifting Trade Winds: U.S. Bilateralism and Asia-Pacific Economic Integration” – Which is a product of collaboration by Australian (Peter Grey, Asia Society Advisory Councillor), Japanese, Chinese, Philippines, Indonesian and Korean trade experts and former officials.

Time: 12:15 for 12:30 pm – 2:00 pm
Venue: National Australia Bank, Level 18, 255 George Street, Sydney NSW 2000
