WORLD TRADE CLUB SELECTS ITS 1993 WORLD TRADER OF THE YEAR

 DETROIT, Jan. 19 /PRNewswire/ -- The World Trade Club of the Greater Detroit Chamber of Commerce has chosen Northwest Airlines Inc. as the 1993 World Trader of the Year. This annual award is normally given to an individual who has made significant contributions to the promotion of international trade in Southeast Michigan. For the first time, the award is being presented to an entire company.
 Northwest Airlines has served Southeast Michigan since 1945 and Detroit Metropolitan Wayne County Airport is currently the largest of Northwest's five hubs. The airline has strengthened Detroit's economic vitality by providing easy access to domestic and international air transportation; Northwest accounts for 70 percent of the air traffic at Detroit Metropolitan Airport, offering 280 daily departures to 84 cities worldwide, including 14 destinations outside the U.S.
 The presence of an efficient air transportation system is a key factor for many firms selecting a site for a new location, and Northwest Airlines has been cited by many of the more than 600 foreign firms located in Southeast Michigan as a positive characteristic of the region.
 Northwest has also enhanced Southeast Michigan's economic development through its annual procurement of millions of dollars of goods and services from area companies. It employs nearly 7,000 workers who live in communities throughout the region. Given an airline industry factor of 2.5 indirect jobs for every person directly employed by an airline, the total employment impact Northwest has in Souutheast Michigan is over 24,000 jobs.
 The Chamber's World Trade Club is honored to present the award to Northwest Airlines at the Chamber's annual International Consular Ball on March 5, at the Ritz-Carlton in Dearborn. John Dasburg, president and CEO of Northwest Airlines, will accept the award.
 Tickets to the Consular Ball are $175 per person with tables of 10 available for $1,750. For more information about the award or the International Consular Ball, contact Jackie Becigneul at 313-596-0340.
