Welcome to the Global Business Dialogue,  GBD, a membership association for those who care about trade policy–companies, trade associations, embassies, law firms and others.    GBD’s principal tasks are to highlight important perspectives on international trade and investment,  to foster understanding of the rules and realities that govern global commerce today, and to bring to the fore the issues and decisions that will shape it in the years ahead.


Watch this space for the announcement of the next event at the Global Business Dialogue.

OUR LAST EVENT: Members’ Lunch 

On September 8, 2017, a GBD Members Lunch with Mark Kent, then the Head of the Trade and Agriculture Section of the British Embassy in Washington.   This was a farewell luncheon as Mr. Kent was finishing up his tour in Washington.  He was accompanied by his successor, Sarah Clegg.

Note to Visitors

This is but the start of a reconstruction and enhancement of the Global Business Dialogue website, www.gbdinc.org.  In a sense, it is premature to put it on line now.  We are doing it because we want everyone who is interested to have access to the three things this page contains: i)  a statement of what GBD is, ii) information on the next GBD event, and iii) the start of the most recent TTALK Quote.
