Assessing U.S.-Russia Relations on the Eve of the G-8 Summit
On May 10, 2012, please join us for a panel discussion with Ambassador John Beyrle, former U.S. Ambassador to Russia, Ambassador Susan C. Schwab, former United States Trade Representative, and Klaus Kleinfield, Chairman and CEO of Alcoa, Inc. The panel will focus on the importance of improving U.S. economic relations in the context of the overall bilateral relationship and how the WTO process has prompted Russia to take measures to open its economy to more international trade and foreign investment. Our distinguished panelists will address these issues in the U.S.-Russia bilateral relationship ahead of the meeting between President Obama and President Putin on May 18.
