AmCham Breakfast Discussion
September 26 @ 7:30 am - 9:00 am$20
“The Future of US Trade Policy in Asia – Post TPP”
Now that the US has withdrawn from the Trans-Pacific Partnership, what comes next? A Breakfast Discussion hosted by AmCham at Cafe Monivong in Raffles Hotel Le Royal.
Greg Lebedev, Chairman of the Center for International Private Enterprise in Washington, D.C. will discuss the thinking of the US Chamber of Commerce on trade issues, the US Chamber’s priorities post TPP, and what is happening with trade facilitation. It is common knowledge that free trade is not a popular theme in Washington right now, so what is the Chamber pushing for, and how is it pushing? How can American companies in Asia take part?
Mr. Lebedev holds a portfolio that spans business, government and philanthropy. He serves as Chairman of the Center for International Private Enterprise, the international affiliate of the United States Chamber of Commerce, whose mission is to promote free market institutions and economic reform throughout the world. He is a Senior Advisor to the President and CEO of the US Chamber, the largest business federation in the world, and is a member of the Chamber’s Board of Directors.
Mr. Lebedev previously served as COO and Executive Vice President for International Policy and National Security Affairs at the Chamber. In addition to running day-to-day operations, he was Managing Director of the Chamber’s public policy think tank, the National Chamber Foundation, and President of the Center for Corporate Citizenship.
He also held a number of senior governmental assignments. President Gerald Ford appointed him to the State Department post of Assistant Inspector General of Foreign Assistance/Deputy Assistant Secretary of State. Before that, he served in the Bureau for Security and Consular Affairs and was one of Henry Kissinger’s youngest Deputy Assistant Secretaries. Prior to his State Department tour, he was Deputy Special Assistant to the President of the United States at The White House.
