Summer 2019 Conference Highlights

The Senate Presidents’ Forum will convene in Berlin, Germany for its Summer Session.  Forum meetings outside the US are an important source of information and experience for State legislators. In the global economy, events outside the country directly affect State economies, investments, and local workforce opportunities.

Impact of Recent Trade Tariffs

The Summer Forum will examine the impact of recent trade tariffs on State economies. As a major trading partner with the US, events in the European Union (EU) can have dramatic effects on State economies.

Brexit and Nationalist Trends

Political changes in the region also have effects on the US States. The forum will examine the impact of Brexit and explore how trends toward nationalism among other EU members, such as Hungary, Poland, and Italy, could impact US trade.

Middle East Update

Additionally, the Forum will hear updates on conflicts in the Middle East on Syria, Yemen and Iran, and consider the security risks to the States from these turbulent regions.

A valuable tradition for Forum events abroad includes sessions with University students to exchange views and get a sense of how the upcoming generation perceives current international affairs and the US role in the world. This promises to be an enlightening and lively session.
