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.
HIGHLIGHTS: 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 AngelesMayor Eric Garcetti and we featured a cybersecurity panel with IT security systems expert Linda Medler, port 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 risk. David Ono, ABC7 News served as emcee extraordinaire.
