Oregon planning global trade workshops for state businesses
OREGON — A series of six workshops are being offered to help small and medium-size Oregon businesses expand their reach internationally. The global trade workshops are being hosted by Business Oregon and its partners.
The workshops with exporters and importers will help to identify the challenges and opportunities they face and will lead to specific recommendations to the 2016 Legislature for freight transportation projects.
The initiative is co-sponsored by the Port of Portland, the Oregon Department of Agriculture and the Oregon Department of Transportation.
The first of a series of workshops will be held in Portland on Friday, July 24. Other meetings are planned for Redmond, Hermiston, Ontario, Albany and Medford. Visit the Keep Oregon Trade Moving Web site for more details.
