Women of Washington is an educational organization with a focus on understanding local, national, and global issues that are critical to our world today.
Chairman and Co-Founder of PSSI (Prague Securities Studies Institute) in the Czech Republic and Executive Director of PSSI Washington Inc. He was formerly President and CEO of RWR Advisory Group, a research and software firm focused on China and Russia in the economic and financial domain.
OUR UPCOMING MARCH 22nd SPEAKER, Roger W. Robinson, Jr., has a storied career as a consultant to policy makers in the US; he's also a voice in Europe as a Co-Founder of PSSI CZ. Forced labor and banning the products created by Chinese companies who practice human rights violations are also major topics for Mr. Robinson. "It should be illegal" to do business with these companies in anyway, much less capitalize them by owning shares of stock. Incredibly, the exact opposite is happening every day. And, that's not all! The US Federal pension funds for civilian and military retirees are invested in dozens of these sanctioned Chinese companies.
"Moreover, it should be made illegal for the persons of EU countries to hold the securities (including bonds) of Chinese and other companies linked to forced labor." In the current proposal, banning such offending companies from accessing European capital markets is not even referenced, much less proposed to serve as a central pillar of this entire EU forced labor initiative. Permitting such a glaring policy inconsistency would fundamentally undermine this entire EU forced labor proposal."
