    The Monterey Bay of California is truly a unique region on the global map. Its rural population of 600,000+ people stand tall in the global marketplace as leaders in agriculture, marine biology, clean-tech, advanced education and information technologies, in addition to being the ‘language’ capital of the world. The Monterey Bay region is also a center for entrepreneurs who ignite innovative concepts and business models that can be followed by other business communities located throughout the world.

    President Obama’s National Export Initiative (NEI) is pledging to double exports in the next 5 years and it will be the topic of the day for MBITA’s Monterey Chapterseminar/luncheon on May 10th in partnership with the Monterey County Business Council (MCBC).
    Come hear the experts in export promotion with a special presentation by Congressman Sam Farr on the National Export Initiative (NEI).
