A Wrapup of World Trade Month 2023

May is World Trade Month (WTM), providing an opportunity to recognize the importance of international trade to the U.S. economy and to encourage businesses to begin or expand their export efforts.

The theme for World Trade Month 2023 was "Amid Global Tensions, Resilience and Growth."

This year we included more than 100 World Trade Month celebrations, seminars, webinars and other events sponsored by more than four dozen different government, public and private organizations.

More than 2,500 people attended one or more of these events to learn more about exporting and importing and celebrate the benefits of international trade to the U.S. and global economies.
