Global Connect

Global Connect aims to bridge the gap between global business and Louisiana’s resources.

Launched in partnership with Greater New Orleans, Inc., Louisiana Economic Development, the New Orleans Business Alliance, the Port of New Orleans and the Port of South Louisiana, Global Connect is a new initiative to maximize opportunities and engagement with incoming and outgoing international business delegations. The World Trade Center will serve as the connector for VIP delegations and visitors interested in trade opportunities with local businesses or learning about Louisiana’s key industries. The World Trade Center will also coordinate outgoing visits for Louisiana businesses to other countries to explore partnership and trade prospects. To date, we’ve hosted Global Connect events with representatives from 8 countries in the European Union, representatives from Haiti, and executives with the Hong Kong Trade Development Council. Check our 2019 calendar for upcoming events in 2019 such as Doing Business in Mexico, Doing Business in China, and Doing Business in Israel, which will all be used to gauge interest from Louisiana companies in participating in a potential Trade Mission to those countries.
