Global Exchange Place
Globalization offers exciting opportunities for regions that are globally aware and engaged. Salt Lake City will benefit by creating a central location to showcase Utah's international abilities and strength into a "Global Exchange Place." A World Trade Center Utah will consolidate the now-scattered government and nonprofit economic development agencies and private sector international service providers as a single premier downtown Salt Lake City location. A conflict resolution and peace studies center will build upon our Olympic legacy of friendship and goodwill to create a university-associated conflict resolution, mediation and peace studies center. An International Institute will house an international university campus downtown. This "park-like" campus could include a foreign language institute, international student housing, conference center and central commons area.
