YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio, June 18, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Today, more than 100 Buckeye business owners attending the TechBelt Export Summit learned from leading experts how exporting can help increase their sales. Export-Import Bank Chairman Fred P. Hochberg, Senator Sherrod Brown, Representative Tim Ryan, Under Secretary of Commerce for International Trade Francisco Sanchez, Mayor William D. Franklin, and Mayor Charles P. Sammarone all participated in the event, which was hosted by the Youngstown/Warren Regional Chamber.
"During these tough economic times, exporting is a powerful way for businesses to increase their bottom line," said Chairman Hochberg. "Ohio ranks ninth nationally for exporting, but we can - and must, do better. I hope that after this summit, more Ohio companies will sell more products to more customers around the world."
"Exports can create more jobs in Ohio," Senator Sherrod Brown said. "An aggressive American export strategy is key to our recovery, and will produce both short and long-term benefits in Ohio and throughout the country. That's why strengthening efforts to connect small businesses with opportunities to sell their products and services abroad is so important--and that's exactly what today's forum is designed to do. I stand ready to help Ohio's companies grow their exports and add jobs, and encourage small business owners to contact my office for more information on the federal resources available to them."
