ADVISORY: Secretary Bryson to Discuss Building on the Progress in Turkish-American Economic Cooperation
Contact: Christina DiPasquale
Washington, D.C. — U.S.-Turkish relations are arguably as strong as ever, with Ankara as a strategic partner on many geopolitical issues. Despite reaching a bilateral trade record this past year of approximately $20 billion—with even further growth potential for trade and commerce—bilateral commercial relations have not kept pace with these close political and military ties. Given the Obama administration’s considerable emphasis on deepening the U.S.-Turkey economic and trade relationship, the Center for American Progress will host Secretary of Commerce John Bryson, the co-chair of the U.S.-Turkey Framework for Strategic Economic and Commercial Cooperation, on Thursday, April 5, to discuss the way forward and his vision for deepening even further the U.S.-Turkish commercial relationship.
Neera Tanden, President, Center for American Progress
Rizanur Meral, President, Confederation of Businessmen and Industrialists of Turkey, or TUSKON
John Bryson, Secretary of Commerce
