Exports are Key to our Growth!

February 22nd, 2012

We had a great guest speaker, Sean Robbins, Greater Portland Inc., this past Tuesday at our monthly luncheon. It was great to hear about their new strategic plan and branding process underway that is going to most importantly focus on retention and expansion of jobs in our region 너에게 나를 보낸다. Recruitment is always on the table, but as Sean said, the idea that Oregon will recruit a Fortune 500 Company is really rediculous. But……..we can focus in on what makes sense and supply chain companies that feed our larger Intel’s, Nike’s etc 국정교과서.
The Portland-Metro area is unique and we have tremendous assets that make sense for specific clusters. We have thinkers (highly educated & creative workforce), we have makers (great manufactures) and we have the means to get goods delivered all around the world (access via our ports) 큐베이스 9 크랙 다운로드. This is a huge edge they will be working to capitalize on.
They have just launched an Export initiative. Currently Oregon exports $22billion per year 다운로드. If we can increase that by just $1billion – that translates to over 5,000 new jobs!

Thanks Sean for a great update and we’re glad you are here 굿다이노!
