CNBC's Kayla Tausche and Tyler Mathisen to Lead Program "Global Trade: Thriving in a New Era"

ENGLEWOOD CLIFFS, N.J., JUNE 4, 2019 — CNBC today announced the line-up for the latest Capital Exchange breakfast series event, "Global Trade: Thriving in a New Era," which will take place on Tuesday, June 11th, just as new tariffs on imports from Mexico are set to take effect. The event will be held at the InterContinental Washington D.C. - The Wharf. PwC is the sponsor.

The conversations, led by CNBC's Kayla Tausche and Tyler Mathisen, will feature the following speakers:

  • Clete Willems: Former Deputy Assistant to the President for International Economic Affairs, Deputy Director of the National Economic Council and a member of the National Security Council
  • Craig Allen: President of the U.S.-China Business Council
  • Thea Lee: President of the Economic Policy Institute

Tariffs, a new NAFTA, an ascendant China, Brexit in shambles – amid all the variables and all the noise, one thing is clear: we've entered a new era of uncertainty. Corporate leaders are in a whole new ball game – faced with major decisions on investments and deals amid a lack of clarity about the future trade landscape. What's the endgame for the Trump administration on trade? What policies and strategies will allow American businesses and the U.S. economy to thrive? What are the priorities for all the stakeholders?

CNBC's Capital Exchange events feature candid conversations about how business and government can better collaborate to create jobs and economic growth. Featuring top lawmakers, CEOs and administration officials, Capital Exchange will focus on the confluence of policy, business and money.
