Leading foreign countries maintain business and economic development offices in cities across the United States to recruit and assist companies expanding in both directions - to the U.S. and back into their home countries.  Many U.S. states similary have representation in the world's top economic countires and regions: Florida, Georgia, Pennsylania, Illinois and Pennsylvania all have 10 or more offices overseas.  Meanwhile, Texas as a standalone State, is the 10th largest GDP economy in the world - but we have only one foreign office.  In this session we will explore how that lack of global representation and engagement is holding back opportunities for Texas companies in terms of finding customers, making sales, and attracting talent.
