Rt Hon Mike Moore joins Gateway to America

As you know American foreign policy is having a monumental impact on the world economy and is fast becoming an election issue here in New Zealand.

I am sure you are also aware that New Zealand has yet to secure a free trade agreement with the US to improve our access to their vast $16 trillion dollar market.

The question of America and the impact it could have on your organisation is something that we encourage you to consider.

The Gateway to America Trade Summit on August 12th can help you to answer any questions you may have, as well as providing you with hard business intelligence, and on the ground advice from organisations that are already successfully trading with the USA.

There will be no less than 14 international speakers who are willing to share their hard earned insights with you on the day.

Speakers include:

:: Kenneth W. Dam, The 8th US Deputy Secretary of State
:: Teray Stephens, CEO, Invision Group, California USA
:: Paul Grey, Founding Director, Peace Software, Florida, USA
:: Andrew Ferrier, CEO, Fonterra
:: Larry Ellingson, CEO, Protemix, USA
:: Rt Hon Mike Moore, Former Director-General, WTO, Switzerland
:: Kevin Roberts, CEO Worldwide, Saatchi & Saatchi
:: Rt Hon Jim Bolger, Former Ambassador to the United States
:: Bill Gallagher, CEO, Gallagher Group
:: Don Learmonth, President and COO, Fonterra, USA
:: Geoff Ross, Founder, 42 Below
:: Peter Maire, Founder, Navman

According to the Rt Hon Mike Moore, a day invested at a Gateway event will save you six months of reading time.
