    Today’s ratification of the USMCA by Mexico’s Senate is another meaningful step in modernizing this critical trade agreement. Our experience serving clients in the region has demonstrated how important North American integration is. We applaud the Mexican government for advancing the process and we encourage the legislatures in the U.S. and Canada to finish the ratification.

  • Celebrating 10 Years of our Citi Innovation Labs

    By Gulru Atak, Global Head of Innovation, Treasury and Trade Solutions June 10, 2019 10:15 AM

    The promise of technology’s capacity to re-define our clients’ and customers’ experiences and expectations has long been a catalyst for innovation at Citi. In 1975, the advent of ATMs prompted us to establish a research center to explore consumer behavior and interactions with these new machines. Fast forward to 2009, and Citi’s Treasury and Trade Solutions (TTS) opened the firm’s first Innovation Lab in Dublin to help us better anticipate how advancing technology would impact our clients’ expectations, business models and treasury operations. This year, the 10th Anniversary of the founding of our expanded Global Innovation Lab Network, is a good time to reflect on the progress we’ve made since we established our first Lab, and to think about the implications of both present and future trends that continue to inspire and motivate us.

  • Honoring and Remembering our Fallen Service Members

    By Ed Skyler, Executive Vice President for Global Public Affairs, Citi May 24, 2019 09:15 AM

    As a Co-Lead of the Citi Salutes Affinity, I often speak to veterans and current service members about their military experience and what it’s like to navigate the transition to civilian life. The importance of those conversations goes well beyond helping to inform our initiatives in support of the military community, both within and outside of Citi. For me, their value lies in the light they shed on issues that may not be well understood or that civilians have never experienced in their own lives. That’s why I recently decided to reach out to some members of our Citi Salutes network to get their personal takes on Memorial Day and what it means to them.

    Global Accessibility Awareness Day (GAAD) is recognized annually on the third Thursday of May. For all of us, it’s an opportunity to celebrate how technology is becoming more usable and accessible for people with disabilities. Thanks in part to GAAD, now in its eighth year, awareness of the importance of digital accessibility is increasing, and the people and institutions that develop and influence technology are becoming more responsive to this need.
