Lt. Governor Kim Guadagno received a cheering business crowd at the Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster Township, NJ, gathered to advance the initiative Choose New Jersey, an independently-funded and operated 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation created to promote the Garden State as a place to invest and do business.
President of the Statewide Hispanic Chamber of Commerce of New Jersey (SHCCNJ) Carlos Medina, chamber member of the board and SVP The Intersect Fund Luis O De la Hoz, and LatinasInBusiness.us (LIBizus) Editor-in-Chief Susana G Baumann were among the invitees.
. A similar program is being run in New York State by Governor Cuomo. The programs are based on tax incentive programs to businesses in the short and medium terms.
Guadagno thanked Choose NJ CEO Tracye McDaniel, board members and supporters for their efforts to advance the organization’s mission to encourage and nurture economic growth throughout New Jersey, which has also included backing Governor Chris Christie’s international travels to promote business attraction and relocation into the Garden State.
In fact, Christie recently traveled for a trade mission to Mexico with a delegation that included the head of New Jersey’s Economic Development Authority, a former U.S. ambassador to Brazil, and executives from major local corporations. The three-day trip was billed as a trade mission to Choose New Jersey that also paid for his first international mission to Israel in 2012.
