2018 Advocacy Trip to Washington


Event Details

  • Date:

Decisions that are critical to the global economy, including tax, trade, spending and national security issues, are made every day in Washington by the White House and the Congress. Each summer, the AmChams in the region take a group of members to Washington to meet top US government officials to engage in a dialog on issues affecting US trade and commerce in the Asia-Pacific area.

This year’s “Washington Doorknock” will be held from July 15-19. Our group is already confirmed to meet with senior officials from the Trump Administration including Susan Thornton from the State Department, Gilbert Kaplan from the Treasury Department, Peter Navarro and Everett Eissenstat from the White House. We will also meet with Senate and House leadership, and with key think tanks including CSIC, AEI and the Heritage Foundation.

This summer is a critical time for US engagement in Asia, as well as a period requiring vigilance on US policies affecting overseas Americans and business operations, including taxation policy, FATCA implementation and more. The Doorknock is a unique opportunity to provide your input, ideas and recommendations concerning how policies made in Washington have an impact on the company or organization that you represent.

AmCham Hanoi members are invited to join this important visit to Washington. Click HERE for more information and online registration to participate in this advocacy trip.
