NAFTZ’s 46th Annual Conference and Exposition will be held in Atlanta, Georgia, Sept. 16-19, 2018. This year’s theme, “FTZs: A public private partnership for the U.S. Economy,” will reflect on the expanding opportunities of the FTZ program as well as the ever-changing landscape of being on the cusp of an impactful year.
With trade policy currently a hot political topic, the U.S. Foreign Trade Zones program plays an even more important role in promoting trade, investment and job creation. As more and more U.S.-based companies import and export, the FTZ program has become a critical tool for companies competing in the global economy. The FTZ program also empowers local communities across the United States to attract foreign and domestic investment, and to retain manufacturing activity and jobs on U.S. soil.
This year’s conference program offers both a broad perspective on the role of the FTZ program in promoting economic development and competitiveness, as well as the practical knowledge that grantees and operator/users need to benefit fully from the program. Along with general sessions on “FTZs: In the News: Trade Cases, Current Affairs & Foreign Investment,” the conference will offer specialized tracks for Grantees and Operator/Users, as well as an Advanced and Fundamentals track for those with various expertise in the FTZ program.
Our Director of FTZ and GTM Implementations, Eric Dalby, will be moderating the session titled, “Managing & Validating Partner Government Agency (PGA) Data.” Slated for Tuesday, Sept. 18 at 9:35 a.m. ET, the session will dive into real world scenarios and solutions of how to best manage the information that is required to file with partner government agencies. Christopher Smith from IKEA and Karen Aulbach from BMW will join Eric on stage.
