WASHINGTON, April 19, 2018 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Wilbur Ross, the 39th Secretary of Commerce, who recently announced his department's plans to become a "one-stop shop" for regulating the space industry, will discuss how the Department of Commerce is creating conditions for economic growth and opportunity for the people of the United States at a National Press Club Headliners Luncheon on Monday, May 14, 2018.
Secretary Ross, a former bankruptcy specialist and American investor, has been an increasingly common fixture on CNBC amidst the United States' looming trade war with China (a result of President Trump's deluge of new tariffs and changes to US trade policies) and his recent decision to overrule officials in the Census Bureau, an agency housed within the Department of Commerce, on the inclusion of a controversial citizenship question in the 2020 census.
Lunch will be served in the club's Ballroom at 12:30 p.m., with remarks beginning at 1 p.m., followed by a question-and-answer session ending at 2 p.m. Tickets cost $25 for National Press Club members (members may purchase two tickets at this rate) and $39 for all other non-member tickets.
