We had such a good time in Cuba! WTE did a great job putting it together, our only complaint was too action-packed & too much good food. I loved the pace, since it was all such wonderful experiences there was very little that could have been cut out. We had V.I.P entrees to so many arts organizations & met fascinating artists, not to mention seeing all of the beautiful colonial historic sites. Count me in for the next adventure…

World Trade and Exchanges (WTE) has a major commitment to enabling culture-to-culture and business-to-business interaction between diverse peoples and organizations across the globe. We worked together for nine months to create a working relationship between elements of the business community in the People’s Republic of China (PRC) and me. WTE had a vision regarding what “might” work. The outcomes were significant, and exceeded by a wide margin what I expected.

Handling administrative activities to make this happen was spotless. The level at which I entered the PRC was very high – again due to WTE’s significant relationships in both the public and private sectors of that country. WTE has been available to me for assistance since my return, and I’ve needed to consult with them to appropriately weave my way through that culture and its organizations. Again, thanks to WTE, proposals are being finished which may well result in emerging business relationships.

I attribute the success of my visit to the PRC to WTE’s sophisticated understanding of the PRC, substantive relationships with significant organizations and individuals, and willingness to invest in long-term relationships.

Robert Fahrer, Senior Vice President/Investment Officer, Wachovia Securities


With your vision and perseverance, in May 2004 I led a delegation of 16 artists, arts leaders and arts supporters from across Washington state on a 11-day cultural exchange and trade mission to China. The goal of our trip was to develop our knowledge of and appreciation for China’s cultural resources. With the generous and professional help of WTE, we were able to learn about China’s support for the arts and to begin to establish a network of contacts for supporting arts-related trade and exchanges.
