Virtual Conference Addresses Potential And Challenges of Del. Global Trade And Investment

More than one in five jobs in Delaware, is dependant on international trade.

The COVID-19 pandemic and the supply chain crisis may impact the potential of economic activity among various countries.

The Mid-Atlantic Regional Summit is being hosted today (Monday) by the U.S. Global Leadership Coalition.
Former Governor Jack Markell, recently appointed as the Biden Administration’s point person on Afghan evacuee resettlement, is on the panel.

“Investments in global health are investments in American health. Similarly, to the extent that our work overseas creates potential customers of goods that are made in Delaware, that support American jobs – that’s a great win-win for us,” Markell said.

Markell highlighted the trade of Delmarva-raised poultry involving other nations – including China – as an example of how essential diplomacy is in growing the U.S. economy.

Senator Chris Coons and Congresswoman Lisa Blunt Rochester will also take part. The conference takes place virtually, and starts at noon, and anyone can observe and listen.
