APEC Special Speaker: Ambassador Lauren Moriarty

January 25, 4:00pm - 5:00pm
Mānoa Campus, Saunders Hall, 5th floor in the Miller Room Add to Calendar

For the first event of the semester, the Economics Club is honored to host a special guest, the former U.S. Ambassador to the Asia-Pacific Economics Cooperation, Ms. Lauren Moriarty. She will be speaking to us about the 2011 Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation Summit, to be held in Honolulu this year.

Ambassador Moriarty is the current Dean of the Asia-Pacific Center for Security Studies and the former ambassador to APEC, an international organization which works to create economic integration in the Asia-Pacific region. The annual APEC summit is going to be held in Honolulu this year and is one of the biggest events to come to Hawaii. Students will have a chance to learn about APEC and about Ambassador Moriarty's interesting career. After graduating from UH Manoa with her B.A. in Economics, Ambassador Moriarty went on to work in the highest levels of the U.S. State Department. She is the first ambassador of Native Hawaiian descent and one of only a handful of women to become an ambassador.

Students will also have an opportunity to ask questions. We would like to invite all interested students and community members to hear from Ms. Moriarty.
