2015 International Policy Forum: Going Global: Opportunities and Challenges for DC Business

February 25, 2015 - 8:00am to 10:30am

Join innovators and experts in international business development for an interactive discussion on why the District of Columbia has been an important destination for foreign direct investment and it is poised to play a key role in the global economy in the future.

Nearly 96 percent of consumers live outside the U.S. Two-thirds of the world’s purchasing power is in foreign countries. Ongoing global changes have made discussions of opportunities for the innovative development of countries and access to technologies increasingly relevant. Businesses looking to increase sales and profit, reduce dependence on the domestic market and stabilize seasonal fluctuations should consider exporting. Panelists will explore how the District and metropolitan area gives an advantage on economic competitiveness with other cities and what opportunities can continue to drive the city’s trade economy in the foreseeable future.

Benefits of attending the DC Chamber of Commerce Policy Forum include:
•         Insightful discussion on how the District can play a larger role in the global marketplace.
•         Approaches to expanding partnerships in key innovative areas for economic growth.
•         Opportunity for networking with colleagues and presenters.
