Image for Competing in the 21st Century: Navigating the Global Marketplace


Tuesday, April 21, 2009


Technological advances in our global economy and free trade have created unparalleled opportunities for U.S. companies looking to expand products and services into the international marketplace. They have also created the need for a well-trained, globally focused and educated workforce capable of supporting American business interests abroad. The U.S. Department of Commerce's International Trade Administration, in partnership with the Economic Development Administration, the Minority Business Development Administration, and other federal and regional strategic partners, has organized this event to highlight the range of trade opportunities for U.S. businesses. Seminar participants will engage senior government representatives and leading experts from the private sector and academia on key issues related to the U.S. economy and its relationship to the global marketplace. The program includes keynote speakers, panel discussions, one-on-one meetings, and valuable networking opportunities with representatives from government, industry, academia, regional international trade associations and economic development organizations in Puerto Rico.
