CSGG: 9/18 – A Conversation with Dr. Jason Furman
On the occasion of The Congressional Study Group on Germany’s 31st Annual Congress-Bundestag Seminar, we are delighted to host:
A Conversation with Dr. Jason Furman, Chairman of the White House Council of Economic Advisers
The Germany’s 31st Annual Congress-Bundestag Seminar is hosted by Reps. Charlie Dent and Tim Ryan, Co-Chairs of the Congressional Study Group on Germany, and brings a delegation of distinguished Members of the German Bundestag to the United States. This year’s delegation is led by former Federal Finance Minister and Chancellor candidate Peer Steinbrück MdB (SPD). The Seminars have provided a premier opportunity for American and German legislators to discuss the transatlantic relationship and the role of their countries in solving global challenges for more than thirty years. We are delighted to have Dr. Furman join us and expect this breakfast discussion to offer unique insights into current transatlantic economic relations.
This event is for Members of Congress only. To encourage a lively dialogue, participation is limited and on a first-come, first-served basis. Please contact Andrew Loeb Shoenig at AShoenig (at) usafmc.org for more information.
