Opportunities for economic development with California’s second leading trading partner will be the focus when Rana Sarkar, consul general of Canada, is hosted at the annual international trade luncheon by the Hayward Chamber of Commerce on Feb. 27.
The event is co-sponsored by the California State University, East Bay, College of Business and Economics
The luncheon will be held from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Golden Peacock Banquet Hall and Conference Center, 24989 Santa Clara St., Hayward. Reservations must be made in advance HERE. Tickets are $25 apiece and will not be sold at the door.
“We are honored to be co-sponsors of this event and look forward to welcoming to Hayward a representative of California’s second largest trading partner and a historic ally,” said George Low, dean of the College of Business and Economics at Cal State East Bay. “Students, faculty, and staff from the College of Business and Economics as well as the public will have the opportunity to learn more about current issues in international trade by attending this event.”
“Hayward is a perfect place for the consul general to discuss the bright future for trade between our countries,” said Kim Huggett, president and CEO of the Hayward Chamber of Commerce. “Here at the center of the Bay Area a growing number of Hayward companies are keeping our chamber busy issuing certificates of origin for their exports.”
