This year’s Trade Talk, “Positioning for the New Global Economy – Staying Relevant, Connected and Ready,” will explore how the coronavirus pandemic has transformed the way we approach international trade and what it will take to shift business processes and focus to be ready for growth in a post-COVID-19 world. Reserve May 4th on your calendar and plan to join us and our commitment to global trade!
This historic event will honor the international trade community and your contributions to our region’s economic power. It will convene CEOs, policy-makers, scholars, and thought leaders to discuss today’s most pressing trade issues and opportunities to build a robust regional economy.In 1935 President Franklin D. Roosevelt officially proclaimed a national observance for global trade benefits each May in the United States. Since then, each U.S. President has renewed this declaration, asking for communities across the nation for their commitment. The World Trade Center Atlanta, one of 320 centers of international business exchange worldwide, responds to the call with its 5th Annual World Trade Day on May 4th, 2021.
