Understanding the Trade Policies of the New U.S. Administration

May 19, 2009 at 9:24 am

FT. MITCHELL, Fri. May 15 – According to the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, Kentucky businesses added more than $22 billion to the local economy in 2005 by purchasing local goods and exporting manufactured merchandise to customers worldwide. However, recent administration changes relating to International Trade Policies have the potential of impacting this activity.

Speaker and author Les Glick, Porter, Wright and Morris, Washington D.C. and Ms. Ying Juan Rogers, Vice President, Kentucky World Trade Center highlights the affects of the changes Wed. May 21, 8 a.m. at the Newport Syndicate as part of the Northern Kentucky International Trade Association (NKITA) seminar, “Understanding the New U.S. Administration Trade Policies.”

“More than 90 percent of market potential is outside the United States and businesses are trying to keep up with a growing global competition,” explained Sylvia Dwertman, chair of NKITA, a program of the Northern Kentucky Chamber of Commerce.

In fact, more than one third of the Chamber’s members are engaged in international trade including large corporations with subsidiaries overseas and the small e-commerce business selling U.S. products to foreign buyers.

“We also have a large number of foreign investments that employ regional workers and pay taxes in the United States,” said Daniele S. Longo, vice president for Business Development and International Trade. “This seminar will help them understand how changes made at the federal level affect them.”

The event, sponsored by PNC Bank and DHL Express is supported by the European-American Chamber of Commerce, the Greater Cincinnati Chinese Chamber of Commerce, the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, the International Business Center and the Kentucky World Trade Center. Admission is $15 for Northern Kentucky Chamber Members and Partners; $25 for Future Members. Register online, http://www.nkychamber.com.
