To Paraphrase Mark Twain…

Rumors of WCIT’s demise are greatly exaggerated.

That is, you might have noticed the article in the Puget Sound Business Journal about shrinking funding for international trade activities in Washington state. And I quote:

The region’s trade-related nonprofits also have been under fire, with several running under reduced budgets, or in the case of the Washington Council on International Trade, a Seattle trade-lobbying organization that once employed several people but shut its office after funding from a combination of sources waned. (emphasis added)


Well, you can’t win them all. But no fear, loyal WCIT friends. We’re far from dead…in fact, I’d say we’ve got the wind at our back and our sails, cruising forward on the open seas of international trade policy. OK, we’re not dead, but we may be bad at metaphors. But regardless, we’re very much looking forward to collaborating with all of you to support policies that will ensure job creation and prosperity for our region and state.
