Their success is our success and it's at the heart of what we do as a member‐based, 501(c)3 non‐profit organization.
This year we partnered with the Economy League of Greater Philadelphia and area business and civic leaders, as part of a national Brookings/JP Morgan Chase "Global Cities Initiative" to launch a dynamic export strategy to drive economic growth and job creation for the Greater Philadelphia Region. The resulting "Export Plan" for Philadelphia underscored that there are many more businesses in the Greater Philadelphia region who can and should be exporting ‐ and need the services of the WTCGP.
As part of our commitment to the international business community to provide timely and relevant information on the global economy and celebrate our global leaders, this year's key signature events and international meetings included:
- Annual Global Business Conference headlined by former Ambassador to China and to Singapore Governor Jon Huntsman
- Business Roundtable with US diplomats from the ASEAN region
- Meeting with visiting delegation from Tianjin China through our WTC network
- Our only fundraising event ‐ World Trade Centers Awards and Celebration where we honored Jerry Sweeney, President, CEO, and Trustee, Brandywine Realty Trust and member companies of the year, Bradford White (PA) and Sunhillo (NJ)
Every day the WTCGP opens its doors to help "grow trade" in the Greater Philadelphia region thanks to our member companies, and sustaining and leadership partners. As we continue to grow trade, we need to ensure that we can continue to expand this important work.
