On June 20-23, 2018, the Texas Lyceum will host a Texas leadership conference in New York City to discuss global trade and relations, as our state represents the 10th largest economy in the world with $250 billion in exports per year, the headquarters of more than 50 Fortune 500 companies and more than 1,500 foreign companies. As business, political, and community leaders, we seek to connect our group with opinion leaders, experts and policy makers to create a robust conversation about global trade, international relations and global security.
