Roundtable on increasing north country exports scheduled for Friday in Ogdensburg


OGDENSBURG - U.S. Sen. Kirsten E. Gillibrand, D-N.Y., Rep. William L. Owens, D-Plattsburgh, and Fred P. Hochberg, chairman and president of the Export-Import Bank of the United States, will be part of a roundtable discussion focusing on efforts to increase exporting for north country businesses Friday at the Dobisky Visitors’ Center.

According to a news release from Mrs. Gillibrand’s office, the bank has supported $30 million in exporting sales from north country businesses and the meeting will especially center around how to leverage the north country’s proximity to Canada for economic growth.

The bank is an independent federal agency that fills in gaps in private export funding by taking on projects that the private sector is unwilling to accept.

The roundtable session is open to the public and will begin at 10:30 a.m.
