A Seat at the Table: An Inside Look as a U.S. Trade Negotiator
Join the Asian Studies Program in hosting U.S. Trade Representative Wendy Cutler as she shares her experiences from the negotiating room. Lunch will be served.
Wendy Cutler first joined the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative (USTR) in 1988 when the GATT Uruguay Round negotiations were underway. Most recently she served as Acting Deputy U.S. Trade Representative, working on a range of U.S. trade negotiations and initiatives in the Asia-Pacific region, including the historic Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) agreement. Ms. Cutler’s tenure at USTR focused on strengthening trade ties with Asian partners, recognizing that strong economic relations contribute to peace and prosperity in the region. After a long and illustrious career as a diplomat and negotiator, she left USTR three months ago to join the Asia Society Policy Institute as Vice President and Managing Director of the DC office. She will reflect on her almost thirty years at USTR being in the center of trade policy development, negotiation and implementation and what she hopes to accomplish in her new role with the Asia Society Policy Institute.
