Congressional European Parliamentary Initiative
In Fall 2015, the CEPI fellows convened in Washington, DC to discuss U.S. trade policy. The itinerary included the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative, the Department of Commerce, and Congressional committees focusing on trades.
The week in Brussels and Berlin saw the CEPI fellows dive into the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership, among other trade-related topics, at the European Commission, the U.S. Mission to the EU, the German Bundestag, and the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy.
