As key drivers of economic productivity, international trade, and cross-border investment, multinational corporations have a considerable stake in international politics. In today’s context of heightened geopolitical risk, successful businesses pursue their own brand of foreign policy, based on independently-defined interests and long-term strategy.
YPFP is delighted to host Stephen Biegun, vice president of International Governmental Relations at Ford Motor Company, for an off-the-record discussion about corporate diplomacy, political risk assessment, and international trade.
Stephen Biegun is a corporate officer and vice president of International Governmental Relations for Ford Motor Company, a Fortune 10 company with 200,000 employees, $150 billion in annual revenue, and operations on six continents. Mr. Biegun oversees all aspects of Ford’s international governmental relations, including trade strategy and political risk assessment.
Prior to joining Ford, Mr. Biegun served for over 15 years inside the U.S. Government, including in the U.S. Senate as national security advisor to Majority Leader Senator Bill Frist and in the White House as Executive Secretary of the National Security Council.
YPFP’s 2030 series highlights emerging themes and issues critical to the future of foreign policy.
