Trade Day 2021

May 21 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pm

VIRTUAL EVENT

World Trade Month (formerly World Trade Week) has been celebrated every May since 1935 by a number of federal agencies, state trade offices, area chambers of commerce, and other public and private organizations. Originally proclaimed by President Franklin D. Roosevelt to emphasize the importance of regaining foreign markets to rebuild the American economy during the Great Depression, World Trade Month has special significance today as we look ahead to a post-pandemic global economic recovery.

This year, Maine International Trade Center will celebrate Maine’s international business community with a month-long campaign to focus attention on the importance of trade for the state and highlight several Maine businesses, organizations, and people navigating international business in uncertain times, culminating with a virtual Trade Day 2021 event.
