AmCham Policy Committee: Insights from the Trump Transition Team

AmCham Denmark’s Policy Committee is pleased to invite all interested stakeholders to a special session with, Roslyn Layton, Member of President Trump’s Transition Team & Ph.D. at Aalborg University; and Michael Aastrup Jensen, Venstre’s spokesperson on Foreign Affairs.

Changing administrations in the White House is an exhaustive task. The Presidential transition team is set in place to ease the shift between the outgoing and the incoming government. The key responsibilities of the transition team are not only to help the president-elect prepare to take office, but also to identify and vet candidates for 4,000 politically appointed positions, including more than 1,000 jobs requiring Senate confirmation.

Join us for this exclusive morning briefing where Roslyn Layton will share her insights from serving on President Trump’s FCC transition team and a few remarks on the Trump Administration’s first 100 days. She is  flanked by Michael Aastrup Jensen who will share his input on President Trump seen from the Danish government’s perspective and how he views the outlook for the U.S. - DK relationship.

Register early, as seats are limited!
