BRAVING THE NEW WORLD CONFERENCE
The Global Tennessee team does a deep dive into the “Braving A New World” National Conference of the World Affairs Councils of America in Washington. TNWAC President Pat Ryan, Board Chair Jim Shepherd and Program/Development Manager Logan Monday provide a debrief on the three-day National Conference.
They walk through the most insightful panels and speakers like: America’s global leadership status, US China relations, the health of the Transatlantic Alliance, the global commons of space and much more.
For nearly three decades, the WACA National Conference has brought World Affairs Council leaders and members to engage with top government officials, diplomats, business executives, innovators, journalists, educators, and students on the most pressing global issues and policy choices that impact our lives.
ADB – FOSTERING ECONOMIC GROWTH IN A CRITICAL REGION
Part II, “The Conversation” is an interview with the Asia Development Bank’s Bart Edes talking about Pacific trade and the work of international development banks.
The Asian Development Bank was conceived in the early 1960s as a financial institution that would be Asian in character and foster economic growth and cooperation in one of the poorest regions in the world. ADB assists its members, and partners, by providing loans, technical assistance, grants, and equity investments to promote social and economic development. ADB is composed of 67 members, 48 of which are from the Asia and Pacific region.
The mission of the nonprofit, nonpartisan Tennessee World Affairs Council is to promote international awareness, understanding and connections to enhance the region’s global stature and to prepare Tennesseans to thrive in our increasingly complex and connected world.
A well-informed community that thinks critically about the world and the impact of global events.
