Assistant Secretary of State for Economic and Business Affairs Charles H. Rivkin will travel to Atlanta, Georgia, June 2–3, where he will meet with business leaders to discuss how President Obama’s trade agenda will provide new opportunities for businesses, workers, and farmers.

Assistant Secretary Rivkin will deliver remarks at an event hosted by the World Affairs Council of Atlanta on how expanding high-standard trade and investment through trade agreements supports economic growth by opening markets to American-made goods and services. He will also meet with a group of small and medium-sized enterprise (SME) owners; 88 percent of all Atlanta-based exporters are SMEs with fewer than 500 employees. The Assistant Secretary will also visit a 3D printing manufacturer and the cargo operations at Atlanta Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport.
