State visit from Virginia in Beckum

State visit from Virginia Virginia as attractive business location presented

On 27.06.2017 Blumenbecker in Beckum welcomed the official Europa-Representatives of the economic development of the Commonwealth of Virginia, USA.

Mr Vince J. Barnett, Ms Ryland Potter and Sebastian Nowack of the Virginia Economic Development Partnership presented the state as an attractive business location. Many well-known German industrial companies have settled in Virginia. The state finances the community colleges by more than 60%. That is why, especially in the technical sector, young people have excellent prospects for the future and the companies themselves can rely on highly qualified personnel.

During the subsequent factory tour, the  discussions regarding the market and business opportunities in Virginia were intensified. Finally, the American delegation invited Blumenbecker to a counter-visit to analyze further potentials and to meet the governor.
