Governor Snyder talks trade at seminar

TROY (WKZO) -- Governor Snyder says that Michigan is well positioned to achieve significant growth through exports and imports.

Speaking to leaders of more than 100 small businesses at the first of four Global Trade Days seminars this week the governor said "There is a world of opportunity for Michigan companies willing to explore new markets for their products, and new products for Michigan markets, all of which can mean stronger business results and new jobs for Michigan."

According to the governor, for a long time the state ignored these opportunities.  He says however, that since 2011 state programs have helped four-hundred Michigan companies pursue business expansion through global ventures.
