World Trade Week

THANK YOU to everyone that joined and supported WTW 2020! The Los Angeles Area Chamber of Commerce lined up three exciting events to celebrate World Trade last month, culminating in our virtual conference! We welcomed the opportunity to have 500 attendees, including representatives from more than 30 countries, come together -- virtually -- to support and celebrate trade in Los Angeles. We had an action-packed morning filled with stimulating speakers, an informative panel discussion and valuable connections to the global trade community.

It was an honor to hear from Børge Brende, president of the World Economic Forum as he shared an urgent call to action to re-energize trade by removing digital barriers, leading with inclusive growth and environmental stewardship. We heard insightful comments from U.S. Export Import Bank chair Kimberly Reed and Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti and we featured a cybersecurity panel with IT security systems expert Linda Medlerport directors Gene Seroka and Mario Cordero, Matthew Travis of the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency and Chris Hetner, special adviser to the U.S. Treasury for cyber riskDavid Ono, ABC7 News served as emcee extraordinaire.

The previous week, 16 exceptional college and high school students were awarded with more than $12,000 in scholarships. We also featured the World Trade Week honorees in the World Trade Week Export and Global Engagement Success program, with special keynote remarks by Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors Chair Kathryn Barger. Executives of recognized companies shared their stories of success in a competitive global landscape.
You can relive the action and access the event recording as well as the interactive 2020 World Trade Week Info Guide.
