World Trade Center Kentucky President Ed Webb was personally invited by the Stephen Bridges, HM Consul General to join a select group of business leaders from cities across the USA to visit Washington DC for a 2-day TTIP Business Ambassadors’ Program on 26-27 March 2015. Securing an ambitious Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) is a priority for the UK, EU and US. The ongoing negotiations represent a major opportunity for businesses, workers and consumers alike. The TTIP Business Ambassadors’ program was designed to help Ed and the other trade leaders to better understand the trade deal and identify how the business community can get involved.
