MDBC Trade & Logistics Committee Meeting

Wednesday, September 13

8:30 AM – 11:00 AM

The Trade & Logistics Committee will hold the last Trade and Logistics Committee Meeting of the year on Wednesday, September 13 at Port Miami located in Terminal E. 

The current Chair, Jennifer Diaz, will hand the reigns of the committee over to the Chair Elect, Cloudya Esther. 

A distinguished panel of experts will discuss how AI is transforming the nature of work and industry practices. 

As interest in Artificial Intelligence (AI) grows, so does the demand for resources to help educate and inform about this rapidly developing technology. AI is increasingly being used in a range of industries to improve processes, save costs, and increase efficiencies. The panel of early adopters of AI will speak to their experience about the potential, limitations, and impact of Artificial Intelligence from their vantage point. 

The discussion will include insights on:

  • How does AI affect competitiveness in our industry?
  • What will the future of our workforce look like with increasing adoption of AI?
  • What are the tactical things that government and academia can do to help industry with the necessary tools they need to help individuals prepare for the future.

International Trade Week

Diaz Trade Law was enthusiastic to attend various events from International Trade Week which took place from May 16-20 of 2022. Here is a recap of all the events we attended!
