We believe educating Louisiana businesses in specific areas of international trade is the best way to make global participation a priority in business planning. We create opportunities for businesses to talk directly with key global industry leaders and subject matter experts to learn from their experiences in an effort to make international trade relevant to more Louisiana businesses.
