FTA Services The Importance of International Trade Southern California is America’s hub of international trade. This is demonstrated by the fact that we are home to our nation’s largest seaport complex and second busiest air cargo airport. Furthermore, international trade activities provide almost half a million people in our region’s five-county area with well-paying jobs. Part of the Foreign Trade Association’s mission is to highlight the significance of trade so that our local, national and international communities will continue to reap its benefits. Our Origins The FTA was founded in 1919 by individuals who had the dream of establishing a force to represent the international trade community in Southern California for years to come. The FTA has honored their foresight by remaining one of the region’s most respected trade associations. Our Members Reflecting the diversity of our region’s business community, FTA membership embraces a wide spectrum of firms and individuals involved, directly or indirectly, in international trade. Our membership profile ranges from large, multinational companies to small international focused entrepreneurs. In addition to exporters and importers, our membership includes the service providers who help to keep international trade flowing. Today, the FTA membership spans the U.S. and Canada and our goal is to provide services to members around the world. FTA Meetings Breakfast and luncheon programs, conferences, workshops, webinars and seminars focused on timely international trade topics featuring leaders from the public and private sectors.
