Washington International Trade Conference
On January 29, 2019, WITA will host its first ever Washington International Trade Conference (WITC). The WITC will bring together leaders on international trade from around the U.S. and around the world to debate and discuss the most important issues facing policy makers and those making decisions affecting trade, investment and global value chains.
Attendees at the WITC will be a cross section of the WITA membership, including trade leaders from across the U.S. government (Administration and Congress), embassies, business, law, academia, and trade practitioners from across industries and sectors.
