The Salt Lake Chamber has formalized new alliances with the Ural Chamber of Commerce & Industry of Russia and the Sana’a Chamber of Commerce & Industry of the Republic of Yemen. The chambers will actively promote business exchange and cooperation.
Through collaborative efforts, the chambers will strive to promote a global outlook and international understanding to improve relationships, and boost international exchange and business activities that are mutually beneficial.
The Salt Lake Chamber encourages Utah businesses to participate in the global marketplace. Over the past five years, Utah was the only state to double international merchandise exports. In the first quarter of 2012 alone, exports increased 22 percent from the year before, totaling $5.17 billion.
With the help of World Trade Center Utah and the Chamber, businesses can learn how to engage in international exports. Utah exports mean more high paying Utah jobs.
Russian Business Mission
The World Trade Center Utah will help Utah businesses build relationships with businesses in Russia. WTCU is leading a business mission from Sept. 22 – 27 to uncover business opportunities for Utah-based companies. Businesses that take advantage of this opportunity will build relationships with key business and government figures in Russia, expand their business network and gain a better understanding of business practices in Russia.
On July 19, WTCU will also be hosting a “Doing Business in Russia” seminar. It will take place in the World Trade Center building (60 East South Temple, 3rd floor) starting at 8 a.m.
