I am delighted about the visit of two key trade and policy experts to my seminar. Former  U.S. Congressman Donald Manzullo, chairman of the House Small Business Committee and of the Asia subcommittee, also president and Chief Executive Officer of the Korea Economic Institute (KEI). Mr. Manzullo shared insights about international policy, and also introduced the head of the  government relations office for Mazda – Mr. Sean McMorrow, who provided the inside perspective of how changes in government policy affect foreign investors.Thank you both!

Visit from the Director, Supply Chain, Professional and Business Services, Maureen R. Smith

It is an honor and a pleasure to have Mrs. Smith visit us in the Seminar on International Trade. After many decades with government, Maureen is more than a total Insider. Simultaneously she is a historian, a pivotal link, an interpreter and able to derive the benefits of understanding where other only shrug.

Your Georgetown international education and training is spot-on, enhanced by cohorts who became Presidents, senators and judges as well as key business executives and Georgetown deans. Thank you for your insider insights.
