Cummins CEO speaking on trade

Cummins Chairman and CEO Tom Linebarger will speak to an Indianapolis group and participate in a panel discussion on the benefits of trade for American business, workers and farmers.

Monday’s Indianapolis Chamber Global Indy Breakfast on the Trans-Pacific Partnership also will feature Michael Huber, president and CEO, Indy Chamber; Steve Haro, Assistant Secretary of Commerce for Legislative & Intergovernmental Affairs; and Stephen Standifird, dean, Butler University College of Business.

“We have to put politics aside and recognize TPP as an opportunity to support U.S. economic growth and high-quality American jobs. The agreement will create opportunities to sell more U.S. goods and services to 11 Asia-Pacific countries,” Linebarger wrote in an Oct. 7 Opinion page column in The Republic.

The event begins with breakfast and networking at 8 a.m., followed by the hour-long program at 8:30 a.m. at Fairview House, Butler University, 4550 Sunset Ave. Tickets are $20 to $35.
