Description

Join Australia’s Ambassador to the United States the Hon. Joe Hockey and the Financial Times’ World Trade Editor, Shawn Donnan for a wide-ranging discussion on the future of trade in the Asia-Pacific. As TPP11 edges closer to an agreement, Latin American countries look to strengthen economic ties with Asia and continued efforts across the region to deepen and strengthen economic cooperation and integration, what does this mean for the US?
