CITT’s signature event is a Point/Counterpoint dialogue on trade issues. It is an educational forum in which different perspectives on a pertinent issue of interest are presented. The format allows for a comprehensive in-depth treatment of a topic in a neutral setting. It will be an informative and lively exchange of information, all done in the spirit of education. The objective is to understand fully the facts and various perspectives on the topic in an educational, neutral format and to allow the audience to further explore the topic through questions and answers.
The Point/Counterpoint forums are available via webcast. Topical videos that are produced to set the stage for discussions are also available for purchase. These videos have been used as an independent informational resource by governmental agencies and industry and community groups. Event proceedings are posted within three months of the event.
