Malashevich '74 to address the WTO, Doha Round, and the Global Financial Crisis, March 2
Bruce Malashevich '74, President and Chief Executive Officer of Economic Consulting Services, will present a public talk titled, "The WTO & the Doha Round: Their Relevance to the Global Financial Crisis" at 4:30 p.m. on Tuesday, March 2, in Bowl 016, Robertson Hall, on the Princeton University campus.
Malashevich joined Economic Consulting Services in 1976 after a period of U.S. Government service at the State Department and subsequently at the Treasury Department. He became Vice President of Economic Consulting Services Inc. in 1978, and President and Chief Executive Officer in 1988.
Malashevich works closely with clients in the metals, minerals, agricultural, telecommunications and electronics product areas. He has prepared numerous technical studies and has testified often as an expert before the International Trade Commission, the Federal Trade Commission, the U.S. Department of Commerce, federal courts and other U.S. Government agencies on the impact of changes in competitive conditions on a wide variety of manufacturing and service industries. In this capacity, his attention has been focused principally on market definition, price behavior, and conditions of competition. His corporate clients have included such firms as AT&T, Toyota Motor Company, Motorola, Harley Davidson Motor Company, Occidental Chemical Company, Teijin, Ltd., Archer Daniels Midland, Conagra, SKF Industries, Inc., NSK, Ltd., Nippon Steel, Corus, Arcelor, and most of the world’s other, major steel companies.
Malashevich also pioneered in the study of international trade in services, by assuming key responsibilities for a series of research contracts with agencies of the U.S. Government. The resulting report, which spans eighteen service sectors, identifies and evaluates the non tariff measures that effectively prevent or inhibit the growth of U.S. service industries internationally and recommends certain policy guidelines for consideration by the U.S. Government in its ongoing efforts to reduce or eliminate obstacles to the further expansion of international commerce in services.
Malashevich received his B.A. from the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs at Princeton and his M.A. from the Johns Hopkins University School of Advanced International Studies.
This event is sponsored by the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs. It is free and open to the public.
