Testimony: Massachusetts Joint Committee on Export Development
Many thanks to Massachusetts’ State Senator Eileen Donoghue (co-chair) and State Representative Lori Ehrlich (co-chair) for inviting me to testify at the State House today on how to make Massachusetts’ export companies more competitive. I was one of 9 speakers invited and the only one representing academia. The Committee considers the Commonwealth’s exports, trade, and international competitiveness; cultivation and promotion of Massachusetts as a global economic leader; development of partnerships between the Commonwealth and other states and nations related to trade and commerce; and support of Massachusetts goods and services in national and international markets. More information is available here, and check out the pictures below. A huge thank you to folks inside and outside of Questrom and, in particular, in BU’s Government Relations Office for their help.
