WASHINGTON – Congressman Robert Pittenger (NC-09) will host over 300 Members of Parliament, Senators, Ambassadors, and other officials from 80 nations for the 12th Parliamentary Intelligence-Security Forum on Thursday, December 6th.
First conceived in 2014 to help restore U.S.-European relations in the wake of the Edward Snowden revelations, the forum has grown into a premier global gathering where legislators discuss collaborative efforts to defeat radical Islamic terrorism, intercept terrorism financing, confront cyber threats, and discuss emerging threats, including malicious foreign investment. World leaders are given the opportunity to interact with key counterparts from the U.S. government and be briefed by leading government and industry experts.
Speakers for the December 6th forum include Senator Lindsey Graham, House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, Chairman Jeb Hensarling (Financial Services), Mariano Federici (President of Argentina’s Financial Intelligence Unit), Dr. Robert Dussey (Togo’s Minister of Foreign Affairs), and multiple key experts from the private sector.
This is the twelfth Parliamentary Intelligence-Security Forum organized and hosted by Congressman Pittenger, following previous fora in Washington, Vienna, Berlin, Riga, and Buenos Aires.
The forum is scheduled for Thursday, December 6th, in the Dirksen Senate Office Building.
