Searching for new strategies: Region’s business leaders on International Study & Trade Mission to Vancouver, B.C.
Business and civic leaders are in Vancouver, B.C. through Friday, Aug. 22, to study successful strategies for eco-commercialism and regional sustainability. They are part of the Sacramento Metro Chamber’s annual Study Mission. Previous cities visited include Portland, Salt Lake City, Charlotte, Austin and San Antonio, and San Diego.
Thirty participants are taking four days to interview experts on how Vancouver has become an international gateway to the Pacific-Asian market. The Vancouver region has also developed strategies for converting new ideas into business start-ups and jobs.

Other study topics include:
- International Trade & Commerce
- Tourism Surrounding 2010 Winter Olympics
- Film as a World-Class Niche Industry Cluster
- High Quality of Life
How Sacramento can use its combined assets to grow business and jobs in the region will be recommended by Study Mission participants. A report will be published in the Metro Business Quarterly, released in October.
