California District Export Council Members Meet at CalChamber

Members of California District Export Councils (DEC) met in Sacramento on May 27, 2015 to hear from Roy Paulson, Chair of the National District Export Council and President of Paulson Manufacturing, and attended several international trade-related events.

Trade Promotion Authority and the re-authorization of the Export–Import Bank, both issues pending in Congress and affecting U.S. / California exports, were the focus of a conversation with Antwaun Griffin, Deputy Assistant Secretary at the U.S. Department of Commerce.
