We’ve noticed that there is a major disconnect between companies and policymakers. Whether it’s infrastructure, insurance costs, workforce or trade, recent policy changes on the national and state level have made doing business more difficult.

Kansas Global is delighted to announce that this year’s focus is providing the tools for businesses to use policy as their competitive edge. Kansas Global Trade Services is partnering with the Wichita Chamber to host a conference that will bring the community together to help small and medium-sized businesses!

We would be delighted for you to join us for the upcoming conference on August 29th! To achieve these objectives, we are gathering Kansas Congressional Delegates, industry leaders and local business owners to discuss trade policy, infrastructure, immigration, and taxes. These topics were selected because of their strong connection to business in the global theater.

Leverage your competitive advantage and join us for an exciting afternoon.!
