FORT WAYNE - A half-day seminar focusing on global commerce will take place Tuesday at the Sweetwater Sound Inc. headquarters in Fort Wayne. "Trade & Tariffs: International Opportunities for Northeast Indiana" is a World Trade Center Indianapolis program that will cover topics including international trade policy, leadership and resources.

Greater Fort Wayne Inc. Chief Executive Officer Eric Doden says "our region is experiencing phenomenal growth in manufacturing, agribusiness, and in the service sector. But we cannot turn away from foreign markets if we want to keep Northeast Indiana's economy competitive in coming decades. Trade within the United States represents only a fraction of the possibilities available to companies in Fort Wayne, and it's critical to encourage local businesses to participate in that global marketplace."

Speakers include Doden, Northeast Indiana Regional Partnership Chief Executive Officer John Sampson, Northeast Indiana Regional Chamber President Bill Konyha, World Trade Center Indianapolis CEO Doris Anne Sadler and PNC Financial Services Group Senior Economist Bill Adams.
