In 2015, as part of a strategic partnership with the Brookings Institution and in collaboration with regional stakeholders, World Trade Center San Diego (WTCSD) released its "Go Global: San Diego's Global Trade and Investment Initiative." Five years later, WTCSD has refreshed this regional strategic plan in partnership with the Center for Commerce and Diplomacy at UC San Diego, focusing on global engagement as an engine for regional recovery and resilience.

Join our virtual Global Competitiveness Council meeting on Thursday, April 1 from 8:30 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. We'll share key findings from our new strategic plan and learn how trade and investment will help San Diego its global competitiveness and domestic resilience.
