BNE to market region at D.C. forum

Buffalo Business First Reporter- Business First
 The Buffalo Niagara Enterprise will be part of a national economic development forum designed to lure foreign interests into investing in the U.S.

Tony Kurdziel, BNE business development manager, will be among more than 40 economic development specialists meeting with as many as 50 international interests in Washington, D.C. as part of Select USA’s investment summit. Select USA is a federal initiative run under the auspices of the U.S. Department of Commerce. The two-day meeting takes place on Oct. 31 and Nov. 1.

The summit is part of a directive from President Obama aimed at encouraging more investment and expansion in the U.S. by foreign companies.

For the BNE, it is a chance to put the region on the economic development radar of a potentially lucrative market.

“It’s about networking,” said Tom Kucharski, BNE president and CEO. More here.
