UVU Diplomatic Conference on International Trade Relations

On March 12, we welcomed Lt. Governor Spencer Cox, consuls general from 12 countries and international business leaders from throughout the Wasatch Front to UVU. The Office for Global Engagement hosted the inaugural event which brought together diplomats, corporate leaders and students in this unique networking environment.

This conference served as a powerful forum to exchange ideas, to network and to collaborate with entities in the state of Utah, both economic and academic. It offered breakout sessions where individual countries were featured and conference participants were able to interact with trade representatives directly.
