In celebration of BC’s Chamber of Commerce Week, the Prince George Chamber is hosting a couple events. Starting at 5 p.m. tonight, members and residents are invited to the Chamber Office on Vancouver Street to learn about this years Familiarization Tour to India.
“The provincial government decided India is a market they are really going to be spending a lot of money in to open up, similarly to what they did to China a dozen or so years ago,” says the CEO of the Prince George Chamber of Commerce, Christie Ray. “I have heard about a number of different plans for India, I believe it is a suitable and fitting market for Prince George businesses so we will let members decide.”
On Thursday evening, a ‘Business After 5’ networking event will be held at the Twisted Cork. It’s a chance for professionals to get to know each other and other businesses better. The Prince George Chamber has close to 800 members now, and has been around for 105 years.
Ray says it has brought many resolutions to the provincial and federal governments over the years, amplifying the voice of Prince George business owners. “That certainly is a piece of it. The Chamber here is known for our vibrancy and excited approach to helping our members to build their own relationships with individuals, we are very very good at that.”
