At our Winter meeting, the Utah Alliance had a great opportunity to hear from Derek Miller, President & CEO of the World Trade Center. The mission of the WTC is to help Utah companies think, act and succeed globally. Between the WTC and the International office at GOED, a Utah company has most of the resources they need to begin or enhance their international presence. WTC provides resources to Utah companies which includes:
- Hosting Diplomatic visitors
- Leading Trade Missions - 2016 missions to Mexico and Canada
- Providing Export news and reports
- Providing a network of other resources including a Foreign Trade Zone
What happens in the world directly impacts us here in Utah. Our economy is directly linked to foreign countries. Exports from Utah total more than $13 billion and create 95,000 jobs. Derek's presentation is linked below.
