Celebrating its 93rd Anniversary, World Trade Week Southern California (WTW), an initiative of the L.A. Area Chamber, is the most extensive and unique program of its kind in the country. WTW dedicates itself to educating the business community on the positive aspects of international trade on the local and national economy through educational programs and events. World Trade Week is celebrated throughout the month of May with nearly 30 events that are jumpstarted by the annual WTW Kickoff Breakfast.

Last year participants were joined by more than 800 prominent business executives, diplomats from over forty countries, and government and civic leaders heard remarks from GE Transportation’s Chief Digital Officer, Laurie Tolson and U.S. Customs & Border Control Commissioner Kevin McAleenan. In addition, over $12K in scholarships were awarded to high school and university students interested in pursuing careers in global trade.

Nicole Simonian served on the host committee last year, and she will serve on it this year.
