Canada, Japan and Korea’s Consuls General Talk Trade and Tariffs at Chatham County Summit

The summit was organized by Farooq Mughal, a Pakistani American who is the managing partner of MSGlobal Partners LLC, an Atlanta-based international public policy and business development consultancy.

Nadia Theodore, Canada‘s consul general based in Atlanta, told Global Atlanta that she enjoyed the 2018 Georgia International Trade and Commerce Summit held in Chatham County earlier in August because it enabled her to meet with local officials, community leaders and businesspeople and not have to “preach to the choir.”

“I especially liked talking about tariffs, trade and NAFTA with the local attendees as opposed to having to preach to the choir such as corporate CEOs and federal officials who already know the issues,” she said.

Ms. Theodore was joined by the consuls general Takashi Shinozuka of Japan, Young-jun Kim of Korea, and Dr. Mohammad Khurram, Pakistan’s commercial trade officer based in Houston, at the Aug. 10-11 event held in Garden City, just northwest of Savannah.

The event’s host committee included Georgia State Reps. Carl Gilliard, Savannah and Pedro Marin of Duluth, Savannah Mayor Eddie DeLoach, Garden City Mayor Don Bethune, Pooler Mayor Mike Lamb, Brunswick Mayor Cornell Harvey, City of Tybee Island Mayor Jason Buelterman as well as officials of the Savannah Port Authority and Gulfstream Aerospace Corp.
