The event focused mainly on the following topics:

1.-) TPP (Trans Pacific Partnership). Pros and cons of free trade agreements between the US and Asian countries.

These free trade agreements have not yet been approved and are currently being discussed in the U.S. Congress.

The participants were invited to express their opinion about the approval of such agreements and to provide ideas that are beneficial to activate the economy, create jobs and reduce tariffs and fees.

2.-) President Barack Obama’s Trade Agenda. Participants were asked how they see the way in which the President and his administration are handling international commercial policy.
