Westside Export Workshops - Let's grow jobs and your business

January 8th, 2013

Greater Portland Export Initiative

The economy of the Portland region is dependent to a large degree on our exports, and has been since its earliest days.  In recent decades, the westside has come to play an key important role in the export economy, with firms like Intel, TriQuint Semiconductor, Electro Scientific Industries, Welch Allyn and hundreds of smaller companies leading the way. As part of the Export Initiatives we are seeking to double our region’s export value in the next five years.  This is a lofty goal, but it has huge pay-offs.  Our region currently exports about $21 Billion – and for every additional $1 Billion in exports, about 5400 jobs will be created.

Two Upcoming Events……………………

We are planning two key events for businesses seeking to understand how to export or how to increase their exports.  We are confident that you and your members will find this information extremely helpful, particularly for firms that are considering getting into the export arena, or that are already involved but want to be more strategic with their export strategy. There are many programs and incentives currently available for exporters – the information at these events will show you how to take advantage of them!
