LOGAN – The Cache Chamber of Commerce will host former Utah Governor Jon Huntsman Jr. at an international trade fireside of Saturday May 6th. Sandy Emile, the Chamber’s president and CEO said the event will give the local business community the opportunity to hear about internal issues and their relation to Utah businesses.
“The state has done some very aggressive things to help businesses do business internationally,” she said. “And he’s going to talk about what the downturned economy and the Chinese markets means for American businesses, and particularly businesses here in Northern Utah. He’s going to talk about our expansion of our technology businesses.”
In addition to serving as governor, Huntsman has been an ambassador, a deputy trade representative and he launched global trade negotiations that guided the accession of China into the World Trade Organization.
Emile said the event will be a moderated discussion with questions submitted by local attendees and presented by the World Trade Center Utah.
