A potential trade war with China. U.S. participation in NAFTA. Peak oil demand. And even the possibility of a global trade war. These are all issues that will impact Houston in the years to come.

Global trade faces more risk and uncertainty today than at any other time since the end of World War II. Patrick Jankowski, Senior Vice President of Research at the Greater Houston Partnership, will outline the primary international forces he's monitoring that may affect local industries from energy to manufacturing at Houston's Global Economy, part of the Partnership's Economy Series.

Attendees will also learn:
• The importance of exports to a city's economy
• The amount of foreign investment in the region and
• Connections to the rest of the world

Scott Kirby, President of United Airlines, will deliver the event's keynote address. With the world's most comprehensive route network, United has its pulse on how international trade, fuel prices and other factors influence global market trends.

A special introduction of Scott Kirby will be made by Mario Diaz, Director of Aviation, Houston Airport System.
