The Florida Chamber of Commerce launches its Business Development and Trade Mission to Ireland and the United Kingdom with an event in Dublin on Monday.
“This week-long trade mission was designed to provide participants the opportunity to meet with potential customers and partners who will build understanding and export capability in two very dynamic markets. Through seminars and events hosted by our overseas partners, the Florida Chamber is one step closer to ensuring Florida remains competitive in a global marketplace,” the Florida Chamber noted.
“The Florida Chamber has a long-standing history of supporting free trade, expanding international trade and investment opportunities for Florida’s business community, advocating for fair and equitable market access for Florida-origin exports abroad, and eliminating barriers that are harmful to Florida’s competitiveness as a global hub for trade,” the Florida Chamber added.
“In order to build on Florida’s success as a global hub for trade, we must continue to forge linkages and strategic partnerships to ensure that Florida’s workforce is the most competitive in the world,” said Alice Ancona, the Florida Chamber’s director of international strategy and policy. “Globalization of talent is an important bridge guaranteeing Florida’s competitiveness.”
The Florida Chamber has meetings planned with Barry O’Sullivan, the resident of the American Chamber of Commerce Ireland who works for Johnson & Johnson Vision; with Lord Mayor Nial Ring who serves on the Dublin City Council; with the U.S. Embassy in London; and with leaders from Florida State University’s London Study Center Campus.
