Nexus of Global Security and Trade Panel – 2017 was a year of uncertainty in regard to global security concerns and their possible impact on trade and the economy, specifically in the Pacific Rim. To unpack manufacturers concerns, we have organized a panel discussion with Linda Dempsey, Vice President, International Economic Affairs from the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM), and Sam Visner Director of the National Cybersecurity Federally Funded Research and Development Center (NCF) from MITRE. NAM has taken the lead in representing manufacturers concerns about instability, and Sam is a veteran of DC’s intelligence community. We hope that ISEA members will come away with new information about the impact of global conflict on the economy and on trade.
