Trade Point Detroit/Windsor

About Us:

Our Trade Point is a non-profit organization supported and sponsored by the World Trade Center Detroit/Windsor Association, working to open up markets in both developed and developing nations. Complementing the World Trade Center services, this provides a gateway to global networking and trade promotion and reaffirms our commitment to fostering trade and assistance worldwide.

The World Trade Point Federation (WTPF) is a non-governmental organization registered in Geneva, Switzerland. Its purpose is to bring together all the Trade Points established in accordance with the guidelines of the Trade Point Program and to serve as an institutional framework for them.

The Trade Point Program was started in February, 1992 at UNCTAD VIII in Cartagena de Indias, with the objective of establishing 16 pilot Trade Points. Its first phase culminated in the United Nations International Symposium on Trade Efficiency.
