International commerce impacts all Washington businesses - from agriculture, manufacturing, software and apparel, to less traditional exporters and importers like architecture, finance, tourism, and global health. As the most trade-dependent state in the country, Washington relies on a vibrant, effective federal trade agenda for our economic success.

Join members of the Washington congressional delegation, federal officials and hundreds of business leaders from across the state for the Washington Trade Conference (formerly the WCIT Senators Conference) on Monday, November 21 to discuss Washington's global competitiveness in the 21st century. Presented by the Washington Council on International Trade, this is the only event focused on ensuring that the federal trade agenda benefits our state's economy.

Conference Topics:
  • Next steps for free trade: Russia, Asia Pacific and beyond
  • Infrastructure and investment: ensuring freight mobility and access to capital for Washington exports and imports
  • Supporting non-traditional international business: the trade agenda for tourism, global health and professional services
