Hall Booth Smith Sponsors the 2nd Annual World Trade Day in Georgia

Hall Booth Smith again is a proud sponsor of the 2nd annual World Trade Day in Georgia program, which will be May 4th at the Renaissance Waverly Hotel. In 1935, President Franklin D. Roosevelt officially proclaimed that each May there should be a national observance of the benefits of global trade and investment. Georgia’s Governor Nathan Deal, by Proclamation, is declaring May 4 as World Trade Day in the State of Georgia. The World Trade Center Atlanta recognizes the date by organizing the annual program for this event, which convenes CEOs, policy-makers, scholars, and other thought leaders to discuss our most pressing international trade and investment issues. HBS attorney John Parkerson is representing our law firm at the event.

Global trade’s economic impact within Georgia is clear: according to the latest data, in 2017 total trade between Georgia and the world reached 225 countries and territories and exceeded a record-breaking $128.6 billion, placing Georgia 8th in the U.S. in total trade. Georgia exports increased 4% to reach $37.2 billion.

HBS’s International Practice and International Trade Groups offer experienced business counsel for global companies of all sizes by assisting U.S. based clients, as well as foreign clients that conduct business in the U.S., in cross-border legal matters involving U.S. laws and the laws of foreign countries.
