Kentucky's Only Female Governor to Visit NKY Chamber
The Northern Kentucky International Trade Association will host former Kentucky Gov. Martha Layne Collins on Tuesday, Sept. 30. Collins will speak with local businesses about opportunities to expand their businesses abroad.
Collins, best known for bringing the Toyota Motor Engineering and Manufacturing North America plant to Georgetown while she was governor, is now concentrating on boosting Kentucky’s exports.
In her role as ambassador-at-large of international trade for the Kentucky Chamber of Commerce, Collins works with chambers across the Commonwealth to encourage companies to begin or expand exporting efforts and to educate businesses on the local resources available to help make that happen.
At the event, NKITA will hold a luncheon entitled Opening the World of Opportunity through Export, featuring comments and perspectives from both Collins and Matt Robinson of Indelac Controls.
Also present at the event will be the United States Department of Commerce Export Assistance Center – Cincinnati, World Trade Center – Kentucky and Kentucky Export Initiative. The luncheon will be held in the Northern Kentucky Chamber’s St. Elizabeth Board Room from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.
The NKITA, a program of the Northern Kentucky Chamber of Commerce, is focused on building the capacity to conduct international trade in the region and promote global commerce as a driver for economic growth. NKITA is managed by a 30-person board of directors with representatives from across the Greater Cincinnati-Northern Kentucky region.
