For more than 92 years, World Trade Week (WTW), an initiative of the L.A. Area Chamber, has been the most extensive and unique program of its kind in the country. WTW actively promotes the positive aspects of international trade that are vital to a strong local and national economy through a series of educational programs and events, including the annual Kickoff in early May.
Orange County World Trade Week brings together Orange County’s International-American chambers and business associations, public sector and private trade organizations, and members of business community to grow awareness of the impact of international trade and export in Orange County. It drew an audience of more than 550 attendees last year, more than double that of its inaugural 2015 event. MAPLE Business Council is pleased to be a returning sponsor of the 2019 conference.
Past Community Events
As Canadians living in Southern California, most of us have had or will have questions about cross-border immigration, tax, and/or wealth management. These issues often go hand-in-hand, as each one can have an effect on the other. So, our friends at Canadians in Orange County, decided to bring together a team of experts to share with us their perspectives on each of these areas, and then we will weave them together in some tangible stories of how they have helped their clients through challenges, through a panel discussion.
