Join WCIT Members for Our Annual DC Fly-In!

September 26-28, 2023 | Washington, D.C.


The Washington Council on International Trade (WCIT) invites businesses and organizations involved in international trade in Washington state and the Pacific Northwest to participate in our 2023 DC Fly-In.

Every September, WCIT members gather in Washington, D.C., to jointly advocate for trade policies that sustain and grow international trade. The fly-in offers a unique chance for business owners, agricultural producers, manufacturers, exporters, importers, and other stakeholders involved in international trade to connect directly with government decision-makers in Congress and the Administration. Attendees will also receive high-level briefings from top experts on global markets.

Policy Agenda

During the event, we’ll be advocating for public policies that include, but are not limited to:

  • Promoting trade as vital to Washington State’s economy
  • Addressing global supply chain challenges
  • Supporting Washington State agriculture to remain globally competitive
  • Pursuing stronger economic ties with Asia Pacific markets
  • Making trade more climate-friendly

And more. View the full policy agenda here.

Event Highlights

  • Meetings with members of Congress and Administration officials
  • Discussions with industry leaders
  • Networking with fellow trade advocates
