Crowell & Moring Presents Trade Insights to Los Angeles Area Chamber of Commerce

Washington – October 26, 2020: Ambassador Robert Holleyman recently presented to the Los Angeles Area Chamber of Commerce on how COVID-19 has accelerated the digital transformation of global trade. His presentation, alongside Edward Achtner, Head of Digital Banking & Strategy Change - U.S. Commercial Bank at HSBC, touched on the current and future trade landscape and how digital solutions are being leveraged to mitigate supply chain risks. A recording of the presentation hosted by the L.A. Chamber’s Global Initiatives Council is available here.

As supply chains and global trade remain weakened from the pandemic, Holleyman and the International Trade Group have worked closely with companies and industry on how best to move forward under rapidly changing circumstances. A partner, in addition to president/CEO of Crowell & Moring International, Holleyman offers unique perspectives on international commerce based on his role as the former Deputy U.S. Trade Representative during the Obama administration.

Earlier this year, Holleyman and Nicole Janigian Simonian, chair of the L.A. Area Chamber’s Global Initiatives Council and co-chair of Crowell & Moring’s International Trade Group, launched a new podcast called Global Trade Talks. The podcast series shares perspectives on key global issues on international trade, current events, business, law and public policy as they impact our lives. Recent episodes include conversations with Rob Koepp, CEO of Geoeconomix, and Fred Hochberg, former Chairman and President of the Export-Import Bank of the United States.
