Governor John Kitzhaber leads Oregon's 2012 Asia business development mission in October to continue the steady increase of trade activity for the state and attract new business opportunities for Oregon. Oregon is well-positioned to take advantage of opportunities with China, with highly competitive assets including clean technology leadership, a competitive business environment and a strong focus on fostering innovation.
International trade is a cornerstone of Oregon's economy—and supporting the nearly 5,000 Oregon companies that export their products and services abroad is critical to retaining and creating jobs in the state
Oregon is coming out of the recession strongly, and Governor Kitzhaber will share the Oregon story at this event. In the last year, many of Oregon's economic indicators rose faster than the national average, including GDP, where Oregon had the second-fastest GDP growth in the nation, and has been growing faster than any other western US state over the last decade.
