The NEXT Four Years:
What the Election Means for the Business Community

November 16, 2016
New York City

As President-elect Donald Trump begins to craft an economic plan outlining strategic objectives for the next administration, what can the business community anticipate for the role of the U.S. in the future of trade and globalization? What is the role of the corporate citizen in the face of Washington gridlock? How will the incoming presidential agenda impact domestic issues such as the national budget, health policy, infrastructure and corporate tax reform?

From Pennsylvania Avenue to Wall Street, this Atlantic post-election forum gathered business leaders, former government officials, and experts to discuss the impact of the 2016 presidential election on the business community and its position in the global marketplace.
