About World Trade Day
Continuing a Trade & Investment Legacy
In 1935 President Franklin D. Roosevelt officially proclaimed a national observance in the United States each May of the benefits of global trade. Each U.S. President since then 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 across the globe, is responding to the call with its 2nd Annual World Trade Day in Georgia on May 4, 2018.
This historic event will honor the international trade community and your contributions to the economic power of our region. It will convene CEOs, policy-makers, scholars and thought leaders to discuss today’s most pressing trade issues and opportunities to build a strong regional economy.
