A Celebration of the 50th Anniversary of the Treaty of Rome
9:00 am - 5:00 pm
Fifty years ago the Treaty of Rome laid the foundation for the European Economic Community. Since that time, European integration has impacted the global trade regime in a truly unique way; the purpose of this conference is to identify those areas of greatest impact. Elements and issues of past, and present integration will be discussed with the goal of identifying their impact on trade relations with the global community and how, in light of lessons learned from the past 50 years, the members of the European Union may proceed over the next 50 years to strengthen trade both within the region and around the world.
