WEDC grant opens China to local products

State aid will help Door County businesses trade with the county's Sister City of Jingdezhen, China.  The county received a $97,000 Collaborative Market Access Grant from the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation.  County Supervisor Laura Vlies-Wotachek, who also serves on the Sister City Committee, says that money will go toward setting up a program to enable trade for local companies interested in reaching new markets.


Trade between Door County and Jingdezhen will be on the Sister City Committee agenda when it meets Monday,  December 9th at the Door County Government Center on Nebraska Street at 9:00 AM.
