The Wes Watkins Center for International Trade and Development

The Wes Watkins Center for International Trade and Development focuses on both international trade and international development. In the area of International Trade, our focus is to assist Oklahoma businesses in marketing their products and services overseas. We provide Oklahoma businesses with Certified Global Business Professionals for hands-on assistance in any and all efforts to expand product and service markets internationally.

In the area of International Development, our focus is assisting communities in meeting basic needs for food, water, education and health. We currently have projects in Latin America, Africa, Eastern Europe, and Southeast Asia. Our development projects are chosen to provide assistance to non-governmental organizations and as an opportunity for service projects and experiential learning for OSU students.
