Building Bridges Between China and Connecticut
Today, Governor Dannel Malloy is in China - leading a delegation trying to drum up business between our state and increasingly powerful economic force. He’ll also be making an appearance at the World Economic Forum being held there.
It’s not the first trip abroad for the Governor - he went “prospecting” at the world economic forum earlier this year in Davos, Switzerland. He’s been to Afghanistan and Kuwait...visited several states and Canada...attended governor’s conferences and shows up on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” so much, he should have his own coffee mug. And, of course, last week he delivered a speech at the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte.
So, what’s the value in having a Governor who travels the world? Specifically, what’s the value of having a governor who wants to make connections in China?
Today, we’ll be joined by Governor Malloy and members of his delegation in China...and we’ll talk with a local China expert.
And, we want to hear from you - do you do business with China? Do you think our state should be making this connection? What do you think of Governor Malloy’s “global ambitions?”
