World Trade Week (WTW) is the most extensive and unique program of its kind in the country. WTW was initiated in 1926 by Stanley T. Olafson, the manager of the World Trade Department of the Los Angeles Area Chamber of Commerce. It was made a national observance by President Franklin D. Roosevelt in 1935. The series of events and programs held serve to focus attention on the contribution of international commerce to the region’s economy.
Each year, the World Trade Week Southern California Awards Committee selects candidates for various award categories in order to recognize their significant accomplishments and contribution in the region’s development of global trade. We invite you to join us for a unique program to celebrate this year’s honorees and hear how they have achieved success in a competitive global landscape and supported a vital economic driver in the region.
