This special edition on Business Radio X is the first in a series where we highlight the international community in the Metro Atlanta area and the economic impact it conveys.
There are over 100 Consulates and Bi-National Chambers, and more than 1600 international companies employing tens of thousands of Georgians. This creates a myriad of opportunities to import, export and or expand abroad. In addition, foreign direct investment exceeded $ 2.8 billion in 2012. And in 2013, Hartsfield Jackson International airport welcomed 9.1 million international passengers.
During this special international edition, hosted by Eric de Groot, managing director of the Holland America Chamber, we welcome Mr. John E. Parkerson Jr., President of the World Trade Center Atlanta, http://www.wtcatlanta.org/ , who is with the law firm of Hall Booth Smith, and Mr. Ignacio Taboada, the Vice consul of Spain, who provides financial solution for individuals and corporate real estate development. http://americanunited.com/
