Opportunities in Strengthening Trade Assistance

February 25, 2015 • 8:00 – 10:00 am EST

Please join us for the release of CSIS's new paper, Opportunities in Strengthening Trade Assistance, the final report of the CSIS Bipartisan Task Force on Trade Capacity Building. The task force, cochaired by Representative Charles W. Boustany, Jr., M.D. and Representative Jared S. Polis, met in 2014 to determine how the U.S. government can best implement TCB programs that build physical, human, and institutional capacities across the developing world and allow countries to benefit from trade and investment opportunities. 

CSIS's new paper highlights the critical role that TCB can and should play in an evolving U.S. development agenda. The report distills lessons from past TCB efforts and builds a practical agenda for improving future planning, coordination, and implementation.
