As the global community continues to grapple with the coronavirus (COVID-19), the Atlantic Council is open for business. Our business, meetings, and events, however, are occurring virtually. For more information, please read an update from our President and CEO.

Please join the Atlantic Council’s GeoEconomics Center for the second installment of its roundtable series on the role of financial and economic regulation in foreign policy.

On April 9th at 10:00am, we will welcome Peter Harrell, Senior Director for International Economics and Competitiveness on the National Security Council and Joelle Gamble, Special Assistant to the President for Economic Policy, to discuss the implications of the Biden Administration’s Executive Order on “Ensuring the Future is Made in all of America by all of America’s Workers.” The discussion will explore how public procurement rules can support ailing sectors in the US economy, whether the Executive Order’s primary focus will be job growth or also to support sectors associated with national security, and future plans to amend public procurement and federal subsidies. The session will also address international implications of Buy American and successor policies and how they interact with similar efforts by close US allies and partners. This session with be off the record and not open to members of the press.
