About this event

Washington International Trade Association in partnership with the Institute for International Economic Policy at George Washington University and the World Trade Center DC proudly present the four-part Virtual Intensive Trade Seminar

Over three days, speakers help attendees increase their professional knowledge by learning the nuts and bolts of trade policy directly from career trade policy professionals from across government, industry, and law.

Participants gain insight from trade professionals, pose questions to policy makers, and learn about the ever-shifting trade landscape. Attendees come away with an understanding of the trade policy-making process, the role of its key players, and the important issues facing policy makers.

Who Should Attend?

The four-part Intensive Trade Seminar is geared towards individuals who want to learn how trade policy is made in Washington, DC. Past attendees include those in business, law, academia, NGOs, embassies and the U.S. Government.

The curriculum is focused on helping attendees broaden their understanding of trade policy making, those seeking a career in trade policy, others new to the trade policy field, and anyone serving the import/export community.

We also encourage the international community working on economic and trade issues, and others who want to learn more about international trade, to participate in this program.

If you cannot view every session at the time it is originally offered, most sessions* will also be available off-line to paying attendees (access code will be required).

To keep the dialogue open and candid, the Intensive Trade Seminar is OFF THE RECORD and is not open to the press.

12 Seminars over the course of 3 days (4-Part Series)

Each part will highlight a different aspect of U.S. and international trade law and policy.
