 KEYNOTER WILL ADDRESS GLOBAL COMPETITION
 AT ANNUAL WORLD TRADE DAY CONFERENCE SPONSORED BY NORWEST
 MINNEAPOLIS, May 11 /PRNewswire/ -- Kent H. Hughes, president of the Washington, D.C.-based Council on Competitiveness, will speak on "Global and Regional Competition for Markets and Profits" at noon Thursday for the 27th annual World Trade Conference at the Radisson Conference Center in Plymouth, Minn.
 Jim McPeak of Babcock Swine, Rochester, also will receive the 1992 World Trader of the Year award at the conference, which is the largest international business event held annually in Minnesota.
 World Trade Day is intended to promote regional interest in international business and to increase exports and enhance the professional abilities of Midwest companies. The conference is presented by World Trade Week Inc., a non-profit organization of representatives of the business and academic communities. Its corporate sponsor this year is Norwest Bank Minnesota.
 Hughes holds a Ph.D. in economics from Washington University, a degree from Harvard Law School and a bachelor's degree in political and economic institutions from Yale University. He has served as chief economist to U.S. Senate Majority Leader Robert Byrd and as senior economist of the Congressional Joint Economic Committee.
 The Council on Competitiveness was founded in 1986 as an outgrowth of President Reagan's Commission on Industrial Competitiveness. More than 140 chief executive officers of business, higher education and organized labor, as well as the heads of prominent research organizations, professional societies and trade associations are council members.
 The council develops public policies to help American companies and workers compete more effectively, builds cooperation among businesses, labor and higher education and educates the public about the importance of global effectiveness.
 Norwest Bank Minnesota serves the international banking needs of U.S. and foreign companies. Norwest recently opened a trade finance office in Singapore, becoming the first Midwest bank outside Chicago to have offices in Singapore, Hong Kong and Taipai.
 Norwest Bank Minnesota is part of Norwest Corporation, a $41.2 billion company providing banking, insurance, investments and other financial services through 1,688 offices in 49 states and internationally.
