Trade Winds Europe Forum 2009 A Great Success

Executives from 47 USA based companies participated in the 2009 Trade Winds Europe Forum April 19-22 in Warsaw, Poland. Sponsored by the U.S. Department of Commerce, the event offered participants the opportunity to meet one on one with U.S. Senior Commercial Officers from across Europe, to learn about regional trends and business opportunities - and to meet with Polish companies that had been prescreened as potential partners in specific business areas.

Representing North Carolina's Thermaco, Inc. at Trade Winds, Owen George was impressed by the amount of hard work and coordination that the U.S. Department of Commerce had put into the event. "I am greatly impressed by our team of Senior Commercial Officers and dedicated staff - career commerce professionals that work hard every day to help USA based companies compete in the European marketplace," said George.
