Lexington, Ky. (June 1, 2016) – Nine ambassadors from the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) will visit Louisville, Ky. to network with local business and conduct a panel discussion offering their perspective on the potential opportunities recent trade agreements could bring to the region.
The event, hosted by The Louisville International Organizations Network (LION), brings ambassadors from the nations of Brunei, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, the Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam to the Muhammad Ali Center where they will present their thoughts on the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) and participate in an open forum with attendees regarding a number of global and regional issues.
