Join us May 10 as we discuss the future of agribusiness within the scope of  EU/US relations. Some analysts say the relationship between the United States and our European allies is at its weakest. As negotiations continue for the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP), agribusiness as a component of transatlantic trade is increasingly important to TTIP negotiators - as well as to business and academic leaders in the Midwest who recognize the relevance of agribusiness for US national security interests.

WHEN: May 10 - Doors open at 5:30 PM - Program begins at 6:10 PM

Heavy appetizers, wine, and beer will be provided at 5:30 PM.


WHERE: Grand Street Cafe, 4740 Grand Avenue, KCMO - located near the Country Club Plaza
