Meeting Focuses on Procurement and International Trade
MIAMI, July 20, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The National Black Chamber of Commerce opens its 19th annual conference here in Miami on July 21. The theme "Making the World Business Friendly" is a nod towards less regulation and increased trade within the United States and around the world.
"In these tough economic times, entrepreneurs rely on tried and true methods of competing for contracts," says Harry C. Alford, NBCC president and CEO. The NBCC facilitates competition with networking and one on one meetings. Building a relationship is the first step in networking. And to that end, NBCC has teamed with Lieutenant Governor Jennifer Carroll, Walt Disney World, Enterprise Florida, and NuJak Contractors to demonstrate opportunities and possibilities for doing business in Florida.
