For 94 years, World Trade Week, an initiative of the Los Angeles Area Chamber of Commerce, has been the most extensive program of its kind. WTW educates the public on the importance and benefits of global trade within the local and national economy through a series of educational programs and events.
World Trade Week 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.
