MBTA2On December 5, 2013 Skyline College’s Center for International Trade (CITD) co-sponsored the 10th Annual Global California Conference with partner, the Monterey Bay International Trade Association (MBITA). Held in Redwood City, this year’s conference theme focused on the Latin American marketplace and the bilateral trade and investment opportunities that exist for businesses of all sizes. Executive Director, Richard Soyombo, moderated a panel of government officials and business people representing Brazil, Chile, and Peru. The afternoon roundtable discussion brought together country experts, local business leaders, legal, and logistics professionals to provide current, relevant information to California companies interested in pursuing opportunities abroad. CITD clients were able to participate in this event free of charge.
