Welcome to the Global Business Dialogue, an association for the Global Business Community and people who care about trade and trade policy. Its principal task is to highlight perspectives on global trade and investment and on the issues and decisions that will shape commerce and the world's business environment in the years ahead.

NEXT EVENT: JUNE 16, 2015
from 9:00 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. at the National Press Club in Washington.

COOL, The WTO, and America's Options.  In the wake of the WTO's latest ruling against U.S. labeling requirements for beef and pork, a number of U.S. industries are likely to face retaliation from Mexico and Canada unless the regulations are repealed.  This GBD colloquium will look at the history of these regulations and the options open to American policy makers, and the likely consequences for U.S. business for whatever course Congress chooses.

A more complete announcement, including registration options, will be published soon.  Those wishing to register early can do so by sending an email to registrations@gbdinc.org
