Sarnia Lambton Chamber of Commerce is spearheading a Global Business Opportunities Committee, and is looking for agricultural representatives interested in increasing exporting opportunities.
Though still in its early stages, the committee is a mix of private and public sector representatives that are working together to help move Sarnia-Lambton businesses along the “exporter continuum”. Their task is to generate interest in exporting opportunities by facilitating education, communication and networking opportunities.
Ultimately, the committee wants to generate new business, new investment or economic development in the region.
