World Trade Centers WORLWIDE

Post pictures of World Trade Centers of different cities around the world. I'll post a picture of mine. This is the world's biggest World Trade Center, called WTC Ciudad de México, in Mexico City (of course). On top it has a revolving restaurant. It became the largest (in square meters) after the September 11th attacks to New York City's World Trade Center (twin towers), obviously the largest at that time.

The WTCA was established in 1970 to facilitate international trade by bringing those together exporters, importers and service providers. The first seeds of the international movement were sown in 1970 when the pioneer World Trade centers- Houston, New Orleans, New York and Tokyo and a number of World Trade center enthusiasts first organized a World Trade Centers Association.

The World Trade Centers Association (WTCA) is a not-for-profit, non-political association that fosters the WTC concept and develops inter-WTC cooperative programs. WTCA membership includes nearly 300 WTCs in almost 100 countries. Over 750,000 companies are affiliated with WTCA members worldwide.

Both Copenhagen and Malmö are getting new WTC:s right now, which means two WTC:s in one metropolitan area.
