NFTC Discussion with Scott Miller of CSIS – Washington

Date: 6/15/16

Please join us on Wednesday, June 15, 2016, 10:30 – 11:30 am at NFTC, 1625 K St, NW, S. 200 for a discussion with Scott Miller of CSIS on the current trade policy consultation process, and how it might be improved.

Please RSVP below before Tuesday, 6/14 if you can join us.

Background (from CSIS):
Today’s comprehensive trade agreements are increasingly complex and often involve highly technical aspects of domestic regulation in addition to negotiations on tariff rates and border procedures. While Congress created an advisory committee system over 40 years ago, many government officials, as well as non-government stakeholders, acknowledge that existing consultative arrangements are inadequate.

Scott Miller, Senior Adviser and William M. Scholl Chair in International Business at the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) and his colleagues are examining the trade policy consultation process and intend to recommend improvements which would boost officials’ access to the best information as well as enhance public confidence in the outcomes. To this end, we want your ideas and opinions and are scheduling several discussions on the topic.

If you are interested in the topic but cannot attend on June 15 at NFTC, you can contact Scott directly at to learn more about this effort.

Thanks very much and hope to see you on June 15.
