Cool Think Tank Event of the Week: Wine & Trade

Although not "technically" a think tank event, this one gets my vote for coolest event of the week:

Today (March 30), the Paul H. Nitze School of Advanced International Studies (SAIS) will hold a panel discussion titled "World Wine Trade Group: How a Strategic Industry/Government Trade Negotiation Partnership Has Contributed to Record Exports of U.S. Wine."

Panelists include:

  • Robert Koch, President of the Wine Institute
  • Jim Murphy, former Assistant United States Trade Representative (USTR)
  • *Doherty, Senior Director of the USTR
  • Jim Clawson, Co-founder of JBC International and Robert Kalik, Partner at Kalik | Lewin LLC.

The event, to be held at the SAIS Kenney Auditorium (1740 Mass. Ave.), includes a wine tasting after the event.
