The forum is the last in a series of events looking to raise awareness in the state’s business community of the European Union and of the potential for stronger trade between New Jersey and the EU. Previous forums covered alternative energy, financial services, life sciences, and technology and innovation.

The forum will feature panel discussions with state business leaders who participated in a recent trade mission to the European Union.

They will talk about opportunities in the European marketplace and recent regulatory developments that affect trans-Atlantic commerce.

Anne-Marie Slaughter, Princeton University professor of politics and international affairs, and former director of policy planning for the U.S. State Department, will be the keynote speaker.

The CES has led a coalition of partners — including the N.J. Business Action Center; the European-American Chamber of Commerce of New Jersey; the New Jersey Technology Council; and Rutgers’ Heldrich Center — Wto organize a series of forums emphasizing key industries.

They are funded by a Getting to Know Europe grant from the Delegation of the European Union to the United States in Washington, D.C.
