In an effort to drive economic growth through exporting, Clackamas County Business and Economic Development has designed a survey to help determine what business services are needed, which Clackamas County companies would benefit, and how best to develop a comprehensive map of county supply chains.
Over the coming few weeks Clackamas County will be contacting over 3,500 companies engaged in the following key industry sectors:
- Advanced Technology – High Tech
- Advanced Manufacturing – Metals and Machinery
- Agriculture and Food Production
- Film & Media Production
- Food and Beverage Processing
- Health Care
- Nurseries & Greenhouses
- Professional Business Services
- Trucking & Distribution
- Wholesale Trade
- Wood Product Manufacturing
The target audience includes Clackamas County businesses that export or businesses interested in exporting. The purpose of the survey is to promote and understand Clackamas County exports, and facilitate relationships among local businesses. The goal is to increase exports, prompt expansion of local businesses and promote job growth.
Postcards with survey information are currently being distributed. The deadline for completing the survey and a chance to win a gift basket valued at $400 worth of local products is October 11. The survey can be found at www.clackamas.us/business/export.html or may be completed by phone at 503-742-4328 or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Clackamas County recognizes the importance of export activity to our business community and the local economy. The production of exported goods and services creates jobs both directly and indirectly in the supply chain.
