A look at the year ahead 

Join World Trade Center San Diego (WTCSD)’s virtual Q4 Global Competitiveness Council meeting on Thursday, December 9 from 2:30 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.

2021 has been a year full of contradictions: International borders closed to travelers but open to commerce, empty office towers despite record earnings and investment, supply chains crippled by pent up demand, and high unemployment paired with record high job postings.

Please join us virtually for the final GCC of the year to discuss the trends that will shape the global economy in 2022. Mayor Todd Gloria’s office will join to provide a brief update on COP26, followed by a discussion with a panel of experts on global market dynamics, infrastructure and supply chains, and venture capital trends.

Please reach out to your EDC point of contact to register.
