The U.S. Chamber in the news - August 29
The survey, by the American Chamber of Commerce in Singapore and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, shows that growth in the Association of Southeast Asian Nations is translating into more profit, more investment and more expansion by U.S. companies. As a result, more managers are asking to come and join the fun.
The most talked-about-party of Monday night at the Republican National Convention was co-sponsored by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, the National Realtors Association and the Distilled Spirits Council of the United States.
Inside the venue, there were ice luges, a raw bar, boutique liquors and hand-cut cigars. Tropical fish and sharks glided through truck-sized tunnels around a few hundred guests. For those who worked in Washington, the swanky top-shelf amenities likely came as little surprise -- the D.C.-based U.S. Chamber of Commerce and the Distilled Spirits Council are known for throwing some of the best receptions in town.
Meanwhile, on Tuesday afternoon, top strategists for three powerhouse GOP allies -- the Karl Rove-founded Crossroads groups; billionaires Charles and David Koch, who founded Americans for Prosperity; and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce -- are planning to huddle at a local hotel to coordinate efforts to spend tens of millions more on television ads and voter turnout, according to sources close to the groups, who were not authorized to speak on their behalf.
The final details are extremely important for folks who are now required to report (nearly every electronics manufacturer you can think of, for example), but people who are not sector specialists probably just want to know if it’s a weak rule or a strong rule. That depends on who you are. The sustainable and ethical investors I work with “welcome” the rule… but were not necessarily pleased with it. Given the variety of stakeholders involved, there are, of course, diverse opinions on all of the different aspects of the rule. However, I would say that the majority of groups working on this issue, with the exception of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, are indeed happy that the rule has finally been issued.
