Transatlantic Economic Forum
December 5 and 6, 2016

The Center for Transatlantic Relations at the Johns Hopkins University Paul H. Nitze School of Advanced International Studies (SAIS) is pleased to invite you to attend the 4th annual Transatlantic Economic Forum to be held at our center in Washington D.C, on December 5 and 6 2016, co-organized in partnership with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.

In addition to a range of U.S. companies, political, think-tank, and academic elite, this year's forum will bring together business and political leaders from 13 countries of the larger Mediterranean to discuss economic cooperation, reforms, security challenges, and transatlantic relations. This conference is part of our "Mediterranean Basin" initiative.

To inspire further growth in regional and transatlantic cooperation, each year we recognize business, political, or civil society leaders whose actions and contributions lead towards a stable and prosperous Mediterranean. This year's "2016 CTR Mediterranean Leadership Award" recipients are: André Azoulay, Senior Advisor to King Mohammed VI of Morocco; Husni Bey, CEO, HB Group (Libya); Hisham Fahmy, CEO, AmCham Egypt INC (Egypt); Ali Haddad, The Forum of Entrepreneurs, President and CEO, ETRHB (Algeria); Ilija Studen, President, Studen & Co. Holding (Austria); Dusko Knezevic, CEO, Atlas Group (Montenegro).

Previous "CTR Mediterranean Leadership Award" recipients include: Robert Aderholt (U.S. member of Congress); Muhamed Al-Mugariaf (first GNC President of Libya; Beji Essebsi (President of Tunisia); Jeanne Shaheen (U.S. Senator); Rifat Hisarciklioglu, President of TOBB (Turkey).

The Center for Transatlantic Relations engages international scholars, students, government officials, parliamentarians, journalists, business executives and other opinion leaders on global contemporary challenges. The goal of the CTR is to strengthen and reorient transatlantic relations to the dynamics of a globalizing world. It is an integral part of the Johns Hopkins Paul H. Nitze School of Advanced International Studies (SAIS), one of America's leading graduate schools devoted to the study of international relations.
