In partnership with the World Trade Center of Los Angeles, we welcomed Christine Peterson, Director of Trade and Investment for the City of Los Angeles and Marisela Carabello, Director of Trade Development for the Port of Los Angeles for more information on the Coronavirus pandemic in regards to LA's international trade. The panel was moderated by Stephen Cheung, President of the World Trade Center, Los Angeles.
The panel discussed how COVID-19 has impacted the Port of Los Angeles, which is the nation's No. 1 container port and represents 20% of all cargo coming into the US. They also analyzed the trade policies that brought America to its current situation and the policies that Los Angeles, the nation, and the world should be implementing to move forward.
