Grant helping businesses expand despite overseas obstacles

Door County's Ad Hoc Sister City Advisory Group says concerns over COVID-19 and its' recent impact on the stock market should not deter business owners from expanding into China.  Collaborative Access Market grants are making it easier for local companies looking to establish business ties with the county's sister city of Jingdezhen, China.  Advisory group member Laura Vlies Wotachek says it's possible for firms to make connections without going overseas.  She also says the grant program continues to draw interest.



Some trade missions from Door County to Jingdezhen had been planned for 2020, however, those have been postponed until further notice.
