250 delegates from WTCs worldwide gathered in Bucharest from April 27 to 30.
The network of World Trade Centers held its General Assembly from 27 to 30 April 2014 in Bucharest. More than 250 delegates participated in this international annual meeting organized with brio by WTC Bucharest.
In addition to the work sessions in which World Trade Centers shared their practices and their perspectives, WTC Bucharest and the World Trade Centers Association brought together a panel of high-level experts to address all issues enabling delegates to have a better vision of international prospects. Particularly notable was the presence of Mr Victor-Viorel Ponta, prime minister of Romania, Mr Duck-Soo Han, former prime minister of South Korea, and Mr Mark Gitenstein, former United States ambassador to Romania (see photo below).
Workshops held throughout these days addressed the topics of finance, technology, and the impact of large-scale construction projects.
In addition to presenting the results and activity report of the WTCA, the Board of Directors outlined the future development of the network, notably the fostering of closer ties with World Trade Centers via the creation of representation offices in the large regions, the first of which was created in Peking.
The WTCA also presented the partnership it had just signed with Business Monitor International, a leader in the management of databases and statistics covering 200 countries and the 24 biggest sectors of activity. WTCs now have privileged access to data from this prestigious organization.
