Help Recognize Companies Advancing Oregon’s International Trade

Each year during International Trade Week, the Oregon Consular Corps recognizes private sector companies that have made a significant contribution to Oregon’s standing as a leader in international trade, investment and their ability to create local family wage jobs.

You can help identify deserving recipients for this year’s Oregon International Business Awards and Consular Corps Scholarship Gala, called “Celebrate Trade.” This year’s call for nominations closes on Feb. 28, and you are invited to nominate a company or individual. You can also submit an application for your own company.
