Sep 14, 2020


Free Online Interactive Event - Friday, September 25, 2020 11:00 AM - 12:30 PM CST
Featured Speakers Include Southwest Airlines Chairman and U.S. Ambassador to Mexico

2020 has seen major changes in the way international business, trade, and travel is done. That’s why for this years’ Growing Global, The World Trade Center St. Louis has partnered with Gary C. Kelly, Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer at Southwest Airlines and Christopher Landau, the U.S. Ambassador to Mexico to walk us through these changes and what it means for our businesses.

This years’ Growing Global focus is on globalization in transition. Greater competition, in recent years, has driven companies and communities worldwide into more direct confrontation and cooperation. The July 1st implementation of the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) is one recent example. Now, faced with an unprecedented disruption to trade, migration and cross-border investment as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, the structures underpinning globalization itself are being called into question.

Growing Global 2020 will analyze this rapidly changing landscape as St. Louis leaders prepare for the opportunities and challenges of Globalization in Transition.
