Savannah Is A "World Trade Center"

With a motto of "prosperity through trade" and a member list that includes pretty much every major city sitting on a navigable piece of water in the world, the World Trade Center's Association has a pretty obvious mission. As the group began its annual General Assembly yesterday in Sao Paulo, Brazil, it was announced that Savannah had joined its ranks and was awarded a license to become a "World Trade Center," the first in Georgia. Between this news and the ongoing presence of Occupy Atlanta (for now, anyway), Georgia's really growing up. [Atlanta Business Chronicle / AJC]
