There would be no American nation without foreign trade. This is the story of the National Foreign Trade Council, the oldest national trade association in the United States dedicated solely to international business issues. Founded in the Spring of 1914, just before the start of World War I, the history of the NFTC is a fascinating cavalcade of American foreign trade leadership, policy and domestic activity. Despite many challenges faced by America and the global trading system over the past century, the NFTC has remained steadfast and true to its founders’ call for American businesses to work together to foster greater prosperity with their trading partners through greater trade, thereby forming a more peaceful world through closer commercial ties.
