Myron Brilliant, Executive Vice President and Head of International Affairs, US Chamber of Commerce
Despite the signing of the recent Phase One trade agreement between the US and China, many observers expect the trend of decoupling between the world’s two largest economies to continue, regardless of who wins the 2020 elections. Amid all of this, post-Brexit Britain is looking to make progress on new free trade deals with the US and others, while also maintaining ties with China, one of its key trading partners.
Myron Brilliant, Executive Vice President and Head of International Affairs of the US Chamber of Commerce, will visit Asia House on 4 March for a lunch briefing with Corporate Members. Brilliant will share his insights on US-China relations and the significance of the Phase One trade agreement against the backdrop of a global economic slowdown and the 2020 US Presidential elections. He will also outline his views on the potential for a trade deal between the US and post-Brexit Britain.
Brilliant drives the global business strategy of the US Chamber of Commerce and represents the Chamber and its members before the US government, foreign governments and international business organisations. He has directed and led a number of important advocacy campaigns for congressional passage of trade agreements, including with Australia, Singapore, Colombia, Panama, and South Korea, as well as legislation to establish a level playing field for US companies in Russia and China. Brilliant serves on the board of the Atlantic Council, the US Council for International Business, and the Center for International Private Enterprise. He is a member of the Council on Foreign Relations and the National Committee on United States-China Relations and serves as an economic development adviser to the governor of China’s Guangdong Province.
The briefing is held exclusively for Asia House Corporate Members. To register interest in attending, please contact Nadine Golding at firstname.lastname@example.org.
