President Obama’s Plans for Free Trade

In his State of the Union address President Obama laid out the framework to his second-term. Regarding the still weak U.S. economy, the President announced his plan for  negotiating a Trans-Pacific Partnership. To encourage free enterprise, this partnership will grow between the United States and  the European Union. The goal will be to create  “millions of good-paying American jobs,” said the President .

While the President aims to pursue free trade in the chambers of Congress, Georgetown University prepares to host a conference with Andreas Pinkwart the former Vice Minister-President of North-Rhine Westphalia and president of  Leipzig’s Graduate School of Management. He will keynote a session on such a partnership, joined by Mr. Peter Fischer of the German Embassy.  This conference, sponsored by Georgetown University, the American Marketing Association and supported by the U.S. International Trade Administration will take place from March 13 to March 15.
