Yesterday Senator Jon Tester announced his Treasure State Export Seminar, a daylong event in Billings to create jobs and boost the state’s economy by expanding opportunities to sell Montana goods and services to customers in other countries.
“There’s a goldmine of opportunity for Montana manufacturers, service providers, farmers and ranchers,” Tester said. “A lot of folks don’t export because they’re not familiar with the resources out there to help make the process easy. I want to make sure they have the tools they need to open the door to new markets, new opportunities and new jobs.”
The Treasure State Export Seminar will feature various workshops and speakers, including a keynote address from Fred Hochberg, the chairman of the Export-Import Bank of the United States. The Bank is an independent, self-funded federal agency that provides loan guarantees and insurance for businesses interested in exporting goods and services to other countries.
The Treasure State Export Seminar is free and open to the public, but anyone wishing to attend is asked to RSVP at tester.senate.gov/export, or by calling Tester’s office toll-free at 866-554-4403. Click here to see the full advance agenda.
