March 11, 2015
10:00 am to 11:30 am

Please join us for a special member roundtable trade discussion with Congressman Dave Reichert (WA-08) on March 11th from 10am – 11:30am. This is a unique opportunity for WCIT Member companies to engage and hear from the Congressman on trade topics such as the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) trade agreement currently being negotiated between the U.S. and 11 other Pacific Rim countries. Congressman Reichert has been a tireless advocate for trade and will talk about the potential impact the TPP could have on Washington state’s international competitiveness, and hopefully touch on other trade issues coming before Congress in 2015.
