World Trade Centers
A World Trade Center (also World Trade Centre or WTC) is a building or complex of buildings established and effectively operated by the World Trade Centers Association (WTCA) as an instrument for trade expansion. The WTCA represents 317 members in 91 countries. Founded in 1970, it is an unofficial umbrella trade association that unites corporations and government agencies in international trade. A World Trade Center puts all the services associated with global commerce under one roof to foster networking processes among corporations and governments. WTCA President Guy F. Tozzoli describes a World Trade Center as "a business shopping center, complementing and supporting the existing services of private and government agencies."

Famous quotes containing the words centers, world and/or trade:
“[Madness] is the jail we could all end up in. And we know it. And watch our step. For a lifetime. We behave. A fantastic and entire system of social control, by the threat of example as effective over the general population as detention centers in dictatorships, the image of the madhouse floats through every mind for the course of its lifetime.”
—Kate Millett (b. 1934)
“Imperious Caesar, dead and turned to clay,
Might stop a hole to keep the wind away.
O that that earth which kept the world in awe
Should patch a wall texpel the winters flaw!”
—William Shakespeare (15641616)
“Whatever trade one is in, one will find some fault with it.”
