The 2014 china discover global markets in new york a great success
October 17th, New York City – The Discover Global Markets road-show made its latest stop in New York City on October 7th and 8th at the New York Athletic Club. The DGMs are a creation of the U.S. Department of Commerce and feature the participation of the District Export Councils from around the country.
At the conference, nearly 300 participants spent two days hearing from over 60 experts on the intricacies of selling in China and several other markets contiguous to China. Many of these experts included key staff members of the Commerce Department from the Far East who travelled to New York to address the attendees on the latest details on selling their products in China. In addition, 4 members of the New York District Export Council also participated as speakers.
Featured speakers at the conference on the first day included, Stefan Selig, Under Secretary of Commerce for International Trade and Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney of New York. On the second day the featured speaker was Andy Bird, Chairman of Walt Disney International.
EXIM BANK REAUTHORIZATION
On July 19 three members of the NYDEC participated in a press conference arranged by Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney on the steps of City Hall. The purpose of the event was to publicly support the reauthorization of the U.S. Eximbank.
The EximBank charter is up for renewal shortly. The new majority leader in the House has come out against the renewal. Two years ago, he voted for it. At this time, with the help of our friends at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, we are trying to build a consensus to renew.
Download a document prepared by the Chamber talking about the process. What they would like you to do, is send it out to your clients and friends who have used Exim and have them respond to the survey. However, it must be done very quickly to be effective.
