The North Country Chamber of Commerce will host an "Export and Investment Roundtable" at its offices, 7061 State Route 9, Monday, Aug. 22.
The session — which will be held from 3 to 4 p.m. — will feature U.S. Congressman William Owens and Peter Perez, Deputy Assistant Secretary of the U.S. Commerce Department. Through a presentation and discussion, participants will receive a briefing on the President's National Export Initiative and how it can assist companies in growing their export activity, and an overview of the Select USA program which can help to attract investment and strengthen U.S. competitiveness. The event will also be an opportunity to connect with Commerce Department staff.
All area companies involved in or interested in exporting and foreign investment are encouraged to attend and participate. There is no cost but space is limited and advance registration is required.
