The Georgia Hispanic Chamber of Commerce has joined in a partnership with GlobalAtlanta to provide better media coverage of international business news and international members. The partnership includes the chamber’s affiliate organizations, the Argentine-American Chamber of Commerce and the Dominican-American Chamber of Commerce.

The Argentine chamber is also hosting a videoconference at the Cable News Network LP, LLLP studios in Atlanta on Thursday, Oct. 6, at 8:30 a.m., to be broadcast to businesspersons in Rosario, Argentina’s fourth-largest city in population and an important trade hub.

Rosario has an agriculture-based economy and a major seaport but is also becoming a software and biotechnology center. The videoconference is being organized by the Rosario Chamber of Exporters and will be broadcast in Argentina from the Rosario Stock Exchange Auditorium.

During the videoconference, which is to be conducted in Spanish, the president of the Argentine-American chamber, Paula Holfeld, will discuss the chamber’s services and extend a free invitation to the Rosario business community to attend the Hispanic chamber’s trade show in March.

Georgia Department of Economic Development Representative Andrea Taylor, McKenna Long & Aldridge LLP Partner Luis Aguilar and Argentine Consul General Pompeyo Layus are to give an overview of Atlanta’s advantages as an international business hub and the resources available to international companies here.

The videoconference is part of preparations for the International Food Industry Fair in 2007 (Feria International de la AlimentaciĆ³n FIAR 2007). The Argentine chamber in Atlanta is also planning to host a technology business mission from Rosario next year and will lead a Georgia delegation to the Argentine city in 2006.

GlobalAtlanta’s international chamber partnership program is aimed at expanding media coverage for international chambers and members.
