The business Trade Mission will also facilitate understanding the business opportunities available in Puerto Rico with local companies, explore the agricultural products for export as well as provide the opportunity for business leaders to meet individually with affiliated Puerto Rican companies, regulators and trade officials.
“The New York City Hispanic Chamber of Commerce’s mission is to facilitate commerce and understanding among Hispanic Businesses and all businesses within New York City and develop opportunities for businesses located in New York City to other regions,” said Nick Lugo, President of the New York City Hispanic Chamber of Commerce (NYCHCC). “We are very pleased to collaborate with Manuel Casiano, Publisher of the Caribbean Business News to co-sponsor our Second Annual Economic Development and Business Trade Mission and continue this important dialogue among business leaders, educators and community leaders exploring economic development opportunities between our business regions.
“One of our seminars will focus on providing insight in developing market access in our regions and creating opportunities for investment in New York,” added Nick Lugo.
“This Second Annual Economic Development and Business Trade Mission is a great opportunity for Caribbean Business to bring together some of the best minds in Business in Puerto Rico. Experienced professionals, big local companies will take a look at the opportunities of expanding operations, services, products and sales to New York City and New York State,” said Manuel Casiano, CEO and Publisher of Casiano Communications. “New York is a 19 million population market with 3.4 million Hispanics. Our companies in Puerto Rico are seeking opportunities to team up with companies in New York to do business or meet the matchmakers that can open doors for them to spur economic growth in both markets, as well as to explore and discuss economic development between our regions.”
