Registration is open for a one-day international trade conference that will be hosted by the Clayton Yeutter Institute of International Trade and Finance at the University of Nebraska–Lincoln, in collaboration with the Nebraska Farm Bureau.
"What's on the Horizon for International Trade?" is scheduled for Oct. 10 at the University of Nebraska College of Law, Hamann Auditorium, 1875 N. 42nd St. in Lincoln. The conference is free and open to the public.
The conference will begin with a 30-minute primer on key legal and economic trade concepts to set the stage for subsequent discussions with leading experts and former trade policy officials.
They will share insights on today's fast-moving trade policy dynamics, including the future of the World Trade Organization, how new trade agreements may reshape the competitive landscape, the effect of tariffs on supply chains, and the estimated economic implications of recent tariffs on Nebraska's economy.
Edward Alden, Ross distinguished visiting professor at the University of Western Washington and senior fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations, will deliver the opening keynote address.
A lunchtime panel will feature a discussion between former U.S. chief agricultural negotiator Darci Vetter and university students. Vetter serves as global lead for public affairs and vice chairwoman for agriculture and food at Edelman.
Zippy Duvall, American Farm Bureau Federation president, will provide closing remarks. A reception will follow.
