USCIB once again played a lead role in organizing World Trade Week celebrations in New York City, which took place last week.  Working under the theme of “Global Markets: Now More Than Ever,” New York-area international trade organizations put on a full week’s worth of exciting and informative activities highlighting the world of international trade in the New York Metro area.

The week kicked off with a gala reception at the International Trade Awards Breakfast on May 16, hosted by the Weissman Center for International Business at Baruch College.  Awards were presented to local companies HappyBaby Foods, TurboFil Packaging Machines, Gotham Sound and Communications, the Judge Organization, Signature Fencing, If You Care and Snohetta. The New York District Export Council and the World Trade Centers Association were also honored.
