WebinarGlobal | 02. November 2020
Watch the discussion with former New York state Governor George Pataki, (now senior counsel in our New York office), sharing his views on the US and global issues, addressing areas including:
- The 2020 presidential election and the state of US politics.
- US approach to trade deals with the UK and EU post Brexit.
- Foreign policy and international geopolitical tensions.
- Climate change.
Gov. Pataki served three terms as the 53rd governor of New York state, from 1995 through 2006 and he was a US presidential candidate in 2016.
Gov. Pataki's service as governor was defined by his strong stewardship in the aftermath of the 9/11 terrorist attacks. Working with President George W. Bush and New York City Mayors Rudy Giuliani and Michael Bloomberg, he helped to guide the city and state as it recovered from the tragedy.
As New York State’s chief executive, Gov. Pataki balanced his pro-business philosophy with award-winning, cutting-edge policies in the renewable energy and environmental fields. He helped reduce greenhouse gas emissions by spearheading the establishment of the first mandatory cap and trade carbon initiative. Gov. Pataki’s pro-environmental, but business-friendly efforts have won him plaudits from the media and environmental groups.
