May 26, 2017


BUFFALO, NY, USA - World Trade Center Buffalo Niagara recently held their annual World Trade Celebration event and featured special guest the Honorable Karina Gould, Minister of Democratic Institutions and Member of Parliament with the Government of Canada. In recognition of the importance of trade between the U.S. and Canada, particularly in the Buffalo Niagara region, President & CEO John Manzella said the following in The Buffalo News:

"Those three areas could certainly use some improving," Manzella said. "Now if the administration takes a hostile position and demands certain concessions that might throw the agreement off balance, then that can be a problem. We're hoping the president moderates his position, and I think he has to some degree.”
