Chairman’s Lunch 13 March 2018 in Belvoirpark in Zurich
ICC Switzerland strives to stimulate discussion and raise awareness on topics of current business interest. Our Chairman's Lunch took place at Restaurant «Belvoirpark», Zurich, on Tuesday 13 March 2018.
A substantial tax reform and the decision not to ratify the Trans-Pacific-Pact TPP as well as to leave the Paris Climate Agreement are landmark decisions in the first year of the Trump administration. What is the appreciation by US Business? What are the perspectives ahead of the USmid-term elections in November 2018? Which role will the US assume in the near future in the global economic framework? Is there room for a renewal of negotiations on a bilateral Free Trade Agreement between Switzerland and the US?
These are some questions which have been addressed at the Chairman’s Lunch. Peter Robinson, President and CEO of USCIB, has shared his thoughts to introduce the discussion.
The USCIB is the US Council of International Business. It is the affiliate of the International Chamber of Commerce, the Business and Industry Advisory Committee to the OECD and the International Organization of Employers.
