Embassy and Ministry Network

About

Launched in 2017, WITA is proud to count hundreds of trade officials from around the world as members and alumni.  WITA’s Embassy and Ministry Network provides an opportunity for trade officials from around the world to stay connected with the global trade community, and to keep abreast of key developments on trade in Washington, DC .  The Network is comprised of current and former Embassy staff who work(ed) on trade and economic issues in Washington.

Monthly Trade Lunches

To launch the Washington-based activities of the Network in 2019, WITA, with the support of the the law firm of Covington & Burling, will hold a series of monthly lunches on the 3rd Tuesday of the month on trade topics. These exclusive briefings will be conducted under “Chatham House Rules” (under the Chatham House Rule, participants are free to use the information received, but neither the identity nor the affiliation of the speaker(s), nor that of any other participant, may be revealed).

The first of these lunches will be hosted on Tuesday, January 22nd from 12:00 PM – 1:30 PM (this is technically the 4th Tuesday of January, but going forward lunches will be on the 3rd Tuesday of every month).  Lunch will be provided by our host, Covington & Burling.  The topic for the initial luncheon briefing will be the “Trump Trade Agenda in the 116th Congress.”

Because we hope to keep these lunches intimate and engaging, they will necessarily be small, and we can only accept one RSVP per Embassy.
