Chinese Delegation Visits Neo

Chinese Delegation Visits Northeast Ohio

In March, Team NEO hosted a delegation from China comprised of six companies and representatives of the U.S. Department of Commerce in Hong Kong. The companies were interested in investment opportunities in Northeast Ohio and wished to familiarize themselves with U.S. and Ohio business regulations.

During the visit, the group met with chambers of commerce and government officials, including Akron Mayor Plusquellic and Canton Mayor Healy. The group also met with Chinese companies already established in Ohio, visited the National Polymer Innovation Center in Akron and concluded their visit with a trip to the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton.

Team NEO has already leveraged this opportunity to generate three new international business attraction projects for the region.

  • China
  • FDI
  • International Activity
