In October members of the Chamber's International Development Office, took a trip to China to learn how to do business there. The chamber says by exporting to China local businesses can really grow, and help our local economy, "For the region and the economy, if we increase exports, were going to increase jobs, and help buffer against recession," explains Angela Joslyn of the Chamber's International Development Office.
