STIMSON WELCOMES REINSCH: Former National Foreign Trade Council President Bill Reinsch has joined the Stimson Center as a distinguished fellow, the center announced Monday.
Reinsch will participate in the nonpartisan think tank’s Trade in the 21st Century initiative, where he will continue his career-long work on export controls and sanctions as well as tackle forward-looking issues, like the digital economy, global investment and the future of the World Trade Organization, according to Nate Olson, who heads up the effort.
“As trade and economics have increasingly become central factors in foreign relations and international security, Bill’s knowledge of these issues will enhance Stimson’s contributions to an informed policy process,” Stimson Center Chairman Lincoln Bloomfield said in a statement.
Before his tenure at NFTC, Reinsch was undersecretary of Commerce for export administration in President Bill Clinton’s administration, and prior to that he worked on the Hill for two decades, including as senior legislative assistant to Pennsylvania Sen. John Heinz. Until recently, Reinsch also served as president of the congressionally mandated U.S.-China Economic and Security Review Commission.
