Leslie M. Schweitzer to Address Kentucky International Trade and Investment Conference

March 30, 2010 at 7:01 am

Lunch Keynote Speaker Leslie M. Schweitzer, Senior Trade Advisor, Traderoots Initiative, U.S. Chamber of Commerce will talk about the future of trade policies and the new exports initiative of the U.S. Administration. As Senior Trade Advisor for the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, Leslie M. Schweitzer created the TradeRoots Initiative, the only sustained national grassroots international trade education program in the country. The program is designed to raise public awareness of international trade, particularly to small- and medium-sized companies.

TradeRoots has been instrumental in gaining grassroots support for China PNTR, the Trade Promotion Authority, and free trade agreements with Chile, Singapore, Australia, and Morocco. The program also led the charge for grassroots support of the free trade agreement with Dominican Republic, Honduras, El Salvador, Costa Rica, Guatemala, and Nicaragua and the most recently passed agreement with Peru.

Schweitzer was responsible for the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Business Partnership Program with TOBB, funded by USAID in Turkey in 2006. This program, the first of its kind, brought business outreach programs to the Turkish business community through a series of high-level forums throughout the country.
