    It's been a very exciting and busy time for the Global Chamber Nashville office. Recent public events such as Leading International Women of Nashville, Growing Global Nashville: What Makes a Global City, and Global Business Networking: Caribbean Night illustrate that Nashville is poised to continue its growth as an international business city. Next week we will meet with specialists from Dickinson Wright, Nissan North America, Cummins Inc, and the Tennessee Foreign Language Institute to discuss trends and opportunities in the field of Global Mobility & Business Immigration, a complex and growing area of challenges and possibilities for our growing city.

    A key component to such future growth on the global stage is the continued collaboration between Nashville's various international organizations. The Global Chamber Nashville is excited to announce its collaboration with two leading organizations in Middle Tennessee: Sister Cities of Nashville and The Tennessee Foreign Language Institute (TFLI). Furthermore, we are delighted to share that the United States Trade & Development Agency (USTDA) has announced its 25 partner metros for it's 'Making Global Local' initiative, with the Global Chamber Nashville being one of the selections (click here for more information). We look forward to continued collaboration with both regional and international organizations, and sharing many more of the upcoming programs for 2017.
