Wendy Cutler, Vice President and Managing Director of the Asia Society Policy Institute, is one of America’s most respected trade negotiators and played a central role in negotiating the Trans-Pacific Partnership. Ms. Cutler will share up-to-the-minute insight about TPP11 and how Japan and the US are positioning their domestic industries as multi- and bi-lateral deals are developing. Join Wendy and JSB to gain valuable insight into what was gained and lost in the process of TPP’s negotiation and political demise in America, with emphasis on the opportunities being pursued by our nations today. And, of course, to build relationships with people like yourself who are active in US/Japan trade.
