World Trade Week 2006 is May 22 - 26

WESTCHESTER COUNTY, NY - World Trade Week is a national celebration proclaimed each year by the president of the United States. Independent organizations in cities around the country each celebrate in their own way. One of those is New York City: one of the premier centers for trade, culture, business, tourism and immigration worldwide.

In the Big Apple the New York District Export Council, in conjunction with Partner Organizations and Friends (such as Lisa Tolliver, a Principal at 360 MERIDIAN ), have organized an intensive week of World Trade Week New York City programs and events. These include in-depth discussions about emerging opportunities, issues of concern, government policy, logistics, and branding. Presenters include business leaders and government officials from the U.S. and around the world. Networking opportunities are also plentiful. Visit the World Trade Week New York City calendar to see the full week of events.
Here is a sample of organizations that are offering World Trade Week programs and import-export resources:
