COUNCIL’S WUNDERMAN APPOINTED TO STATE TRADE ADVISORY BOARD
Bay Area Council President and CEO Jim Wunderman was honored to be appointed by Gov. Jerry Brown to serve on the California International Trade and Investment Advisory Council, which advises the Governor’s Office of Business and Economic Development (GO-Biz) on strategies to expand international trade and investment for California businesses and assists GO-Biz in identifying foreign markets with the greatest potential for export expansion. The council also aids GO-Biz in developing specific export strategies for those markets – including the state’s top trading partners, Canada, Mexico and China, and emerging markets such as Brazil and India, as well as strategies to attract more job-creating foreign direct investment into the state. In addition to its own work to expend trade and investment with China, the Bay Area Council operates the California-China Office of Trade and Investment in partnership with GO-Biz.
