Global World Trade Day is May 4 and honors the international trade community. The observance of this day began when President Franklin D. Roosevelt officially proclaimed the benefits of global trade. Consider the amazing innovations that have impacted the global stage since President Roosevelt’s administration of the mid 1930’s! With the automobile just having become mainstream a decade before and passenger air-travel just beginning, who would have predicted cell phones, self driving cars, artificial intelligence and “Tesla ships”?
