You are invited to participate in an all-day online workshop on the coronavirus and trade on Monday, March 16, sponsored by the National Press Foundation in Washington. This web-based program features top U.S. economists, business leaders, foreign affairs experts and analysts. Global Business Journalism co-director Rick Dunham is taking part in the last panel, the reporters' roundtable.
Global Business Journalism students, alumni and friends are welcome to attend some or all of this online experience. These lectures can help GBJ students meet their lecture/workshop requirement for graduation.
Registration is required. Participation is free.
The theme of the program is "What’s next in trade?" Speakers will discuss the impact of coronavirus on trade and global supply chains; the effect of tariffs on goods and services; how to analyze trade-related jobs data; and how the election could affect tariffs. Top journalists will give their tips on how to cover this evolving issue.
Viewers will be able to interact with speakers in real-time through Slido, a meeting and Q&A platform. You can ask the experts a question and hear it answered live.
