“SME Trade in a Changing Global Reality”-Jim Wilfong at the Rockport Public Library
December 14 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm EST
The Camden Conference, in partnership with the Rockport Public Library, will host James Wilfong for a presentation discussing international economic restructuring in a time of pandemics, war, and climate change on Wednesday, December 14 at 6:30pm. The last 75 years of liberalized trade policy has been founded on the American model and the superpower status of the United States. A new order is emerging in the 21st century that will challenge American geopolitical and economic dominance. Wilfong will discuss how these factors will affect the future of American small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs).
James Wilfong has been an international entrepreneur, legislator, educator, and trade and entrepreneurship advisor to the Clinton, Bush, and Obama Administrations. Wilfong and his wife own an American Tree Farm in Stow, Maine where they have raised two children. Wilfong also proudly served as a US Marine.
