UPS Chairman & CEO David Abney on Rebooting Global Trade

Please note that online registration for this event is now closed. Please e-mail Emily Rives,, to register.

The way countries do business together is changing—rapidly.  The U.S. is leading a global shift of the rules and tone of international trade: demanding renegotiations of major trade agreements and increasing trade barriers for some of our biggest trade partners. 

What does all this really mean for the average American? What does it mean for global American companies like UPS?  What does it mean for Atlanta businesses?

UPS has been a leader in global commerce for over a century.  On October 17 David Abney, Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of the Board of UPS, joins Laura Dawson, Director of the Canada Institute at the Woodrow Wilson Center, for an in-depth luncheon discussion on Rebooting Global Trade

Don’t miss this opportunity to engage with the head of the world’s largest package delivery company and a leading expert on international trade.
