Corporate Roundtable: Tuesday, September 27th

Trade has been getting a lot of press this presidential season, but little is said about its importance at a local level. Exports and foreign direct investment support tens of thousands of jobs in the Greater MSP region, from traditional manufacturing to sophisticated services, across a wide range of industries and companies.

At this corporate roundtable, hear from Jennifer Kocs Erickson, Export Development Manager at the Minneapolis Saint Paul Regional Economic Development Partnership (GREATER MSP). Jennifer will talk about the impact of exports on the region, as well as efforts to support companies doing business internationally and to attract investment from overseas.

Jennifer joined GREATER MSP in April 2016, where she is working with partners to implement a regional trade and investment plan, partnering with companies, service providers and trade promotion agencies at the local, state and federal levels.  Jennifer previously spent seven years with the Minnesota Trade Office as an International Trade Representative.  Before and after her time with the state, Jennifer worked in the private sector, in international business development, research and project management.
