WTC Members Participate in White House Business Council Roundtable

Posted by Tina

On June 29, a White House Business Council Roundtable discussion was held in Harrisburg, at the PA Chamber of Business and Industry offices.  WTC member Robert Wilson, President of York Wire and Cable, helped to coordinate this event, in conjunction with the PA Chamber of Business and Industry, PA DCED, and the U.S. Department of Commerce's International Trade Administration.

PA Lieutenant Governor Jim Cawley welcomed Peter Perez, Deputy Assistant Secretary for Manufacturing of the U.S. Department of Commerce. Secretary Perez talked about President Obama's Export Initiative and Free Trade Initiatives. The presentation was followed by a Q&A session related to challenges faced by the participating companies in regard to manufacturing and international trade. A relatively intimate group of local companies, many of them WTC members, were able to provide direct feedback during this White House Roundtable discussion. The findings, message, and discussion topics were delivered directly to the White House by Secretary Perez following the event.
