Tennessee Plans to Open New Investment Recruitment Office in China

WPLN interviewed Tennessee State Economic and Community Development (ECD) Commissioner Randy Boyd about ECD’s plans to open multiple investment recruitment offices around the world, starting with one in Seoul, South Korea this year, and eventually adding one in northern Italy, southern Germany, and one or two in China.

“Businesses in Italy or in China don’t know that much about Tennessee. They may not even be able to find us on a map, so just hoping that they might show up at our door one day and decide to locate here is pretty unrealistic,” he says.

He says it helps to have people there full-time. “We can do mission trips, but just sending over people for one or two weeks a year is not going to be terribly effective,” he says.
