There is an opening to represent the City of Perry on the I-69 International Trade Corridor group.
The I-69 International Trade Corridor is a collaborative effort by businesses and local government partners from Shiawassee, Genesee, Lapeer, and St. Clair Counties to market the area’s highway, railroad, airport and water port resources to companies that are engaged in international commerce. The goal is to encourage firms to not only ship through this corridor but to also set up manufacturing and distribution facilities here to take advantage of these multi-modal transportation opportunities.
To support this collaboration, a Next Michigan Development Corporation was created with participation from 36 municipalities in the four counties including 12 in Shiawassee County making it one of the largest intergovernmental collaboratives in the state of Michigan. The four counties of Shiawassee, Genesee, Lapeer and St. Clair are experiencing new initiatives that are increasing trade and transportation. The I-69 Trade Corridor resources can grow your business.
This group meets once every two months. Meetings typically take place at Flint’s Bishop International Airport as this is a central location for the participating municipalities. More information about the meetings is available at Shiawassee Economic Development Authority in Owosso, 989-725-9241.
