PORTLAND : Forum on Asia Trade

June 27, 1995

President Clinton hosts a one-day conference at Portland State University today on economic conditions on the West Coast and the future of trade relations with Asia, especially the Pacific Rim nations. The Oregon meeting is the second of four such regional sessions sponsored by the White House to discuss changes in the American economy and the resulting strains on workers and families.

More than 100 business leaders, academics and workers will participate in the Portland conference, which will focus particularly on defense conversion, job training programs and worsening trade relations with Japan and other Asian nations. Clinton will serve as master of ceremonies.
