World Trade Month the World Over

President Obama declared the third full week in May as World Trade Week yet May in its entirety is declared World Trade Month.  Organizations, individuals, aspiring global entrepreneurs and other stakeholders gather together to meet, network, work global deals and learn more about international trade.

New York goes all out on this!  Visit World Trade Week New York City 14-25 May 2012 here.  Calendar of May events here.

All of this speaks to the importance of international trade in our global economy.

Statement from U.S. Commerce Secretary John Bryson on World Trade Month 2012:
In addition to World Trade Month events and activities across the country, this month the Commerce Department will present the 50th Annual President’s “E” Award that will recognize dozens of U.S. companies for the significant contributions they have made in increasing American exports and creating jobs. Other activities will include the implementation of the U.S.-Colombia Trade Promotion Agreement, which goes into effect on May 15, and local World Trade Week (May 20-26) celebrations from New York to Los Angeles.  ~ More info:
