Global Leaders

Over the week of June 15th, GCWAC hosted 5 global leaders on the topic of “Transit Trade and Value Added Concept Facilitation.” The delegation came to Cincinnati to learn about:

  • Successful transit trade corridors in the U.S.
  • Illustrate the essential role of government, NGOs, and the private sector in developing successful transit trade corridors and value added services
  • To specifically highlight the social, economic, and political factors that influence and encourage the development of effective transit trade corridors and value added facilities in the U.S.
  • And to highlight the latest and most innovative trends in the United States.
