Well, it's my first week on the job, and - in between signing HR benefit forms and getting my computer/phone/cell situation in order - it's high time that I give y'all another blog post. I mean, you didn't “like” WCIT on Facebook, join WCIT’s LinkedIn group and follow WCIT on Twiiter (@WashingtonTrade) just to make yourself look cool (although it certainly helps)...you did those social media things so you could get the latest and greatest, hot off the presses from the Washington Council on International Trade. And I'm not going to give you any old post. I'm a man of my word and, in the last post, I said that this post would be entitled "What’s International Trade Got to Do with Washington state?" And so it will be. I mean, if you now know from the last post "What's an International Trade Issue" then it's only fair that you should understand why you should care in the first place. And believe me, Washington state resident, you should care very, very much.
