Report #83, July 1987


California’s activities regarding world trade, investments and tourism promotion are fragmented and uncoordinated. This study reviews the administration and coordination of these activities.

Included in the report’s 10 findings and eight recommendations, the Commission proposes: the establishment of a Governor’s Office of World Trade to oversee coordination of world trade activities in state government; the creation of a Protocol Division within the Office of World Trade; and the formation of a world trade information clearinghouse.
