Hosted by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and National District Export Council, with a record setting attendance, this year’s Annual National DEC Export Symposium had several panels focusing on the key export issues and updates. Panels included Export Controls Update, Export Control Programs, Federal and Local Program and Grants, Trade Policy Updates and Key Issues, and EXIM Bank Update.
In the National DEC Forum, we discussed the key topics in management of the DECs; such as DEC Governance, Strategic Projects and DEC engagement methods. DEC members dedicated the afternoon session to visits to the Congressional leaders at the Capitol Hill. Evening reception was hosted at the Capitol Visitor Center in conjunction with Center for International Business Education and Research (CIBER).
