trade practice in Geneva.



APCO, which has represented Boeing and Kodak on global trade issues for

over a decade, believes having Weekes on board will prove invaluable

over the next five years, during which the WTO is expected to address

emerging issues such as e-commerce and biotech.



’All the rules of international trade are being redesigned,’ said APCO

president and CEO Marjery Kraus. ’Few people have the kind of knowledge

about trade issues that John does.’



Weekes has a strong background in trade issues, having served as senior

deputy assistant minister in Canada’s Department of Foreign Affairs and

International Trade.
