Evelyn Suarez will moderate a panel discussion at George Washington University on Tuesday, November 1st to discuss the global trade agenda for the incoming president. From the event description:

Just days before the presidential election, please join us for a discussion on the role of trade in global economic growth and what needs to change in terms of policy and keeping the workforce competitive and flexible. Two panels will frame these issues with respect to U.S. trade policy, and will offer insights into the kinds of challenges that the new Administration will need to address.
