AMCHAM was most fortunate to host Mr. James Golsen, Executive Director, Asia, International Trade Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce at the office. It was a great start to the week having Mr. Golsen meet with our members to discuss trade/investment related factors in Sri Lanka.
In this role, Mr. Golsen oversees the Commerce Department’s operations in 14 Asian posts and manages three Asia-focused policy offices in Washington, DC.
Mr. Golsen’s visit to Sri Lanka comes at an opportune time with U.S. trade policy being at the forefront of topical issues. The discussion will cover issues such as trade tariffs and remedies, e-commerce, issues facing US companies in Sri Lanka and the trade/investment climate in the country.
Before assuming the role of Executive Director, Jim was the Commerce Department’s coordinator for the U.S.-India Strategic and Commercial Dialogue.
