John Gregg on Free Trade
Unified strategy to promote Hoosier brand worldwide
A Gregg administration will work to rebuild Indiana's world-class network of trade offices and export assistance programs that supported small and medium-sized business. These offices and programs help to link Hoosier businesses with economic engines
around the world, translating to new business opportunities and more jobs. Indiana now maintains only 5 international offices, down from 14 in previous administrations.
In addition, Governor Gregg will develop an integrated, coordinated state
export strategy that leverages the strength of existing initiatives. There is currently no coordinated state strategy to ensure a comprehensive approach to economic development.
To increase access to resources, Indiana will work closely with the
US Department of Commerce to maximize grant funding and promote Indiana as a pilot state for export initiatives. Gregg will develop a unified strategy to create and promote a Hoosier "brand" recognized around the world.
