Trade Representative Katherine Tai will deliver a speech on the World Trade Organization and participate in a fireside chat Friday at the Center for Strategic and International Studies in Washington, D.C.

Tai will also participate in a fireside chat with the WTO Director-General.

In her speech, Ambassador Tai will underscore the importance of reform at the World Trade Organization to make it a more effective, responsive, and inclusive forum for solving today's global challenges.

She will also highlight areas of reform that are a priority to the United States, and how the United States is engaging with other WTO Members to advance these priorities.

The organization is self-described as one of the world’s preeminent public policy institutions on foreign policy and national security issues.
