World Trade Week BeginsMay 18, 2009
Jeremy Caplan is a public affairs specialist in the International Trade Administration’s Office of Public Affairs.
On May 6, 2009, President Barak Obama issued a presidential proclamation that May 17-May 23, 2009, be observed as World Trade Week and encouraged “all Americans to observe this week with events, trade shows, and educational programs that celebrate the benefits of trade to our Nation and the global economy.”
Since international trade is what we’re all about here at the International Trade Administration, it probably won’t surprise anyone that we look forward to World Trade Week every year and are involved quite a few events and other goings on this week and throughout the month. We are planning to have new World Trade Week related content on the ITA Blog each day this week, so please check in every day this week to see what’s new. Thanks and see you soon!
