Mayor Eric Garcetti speaks at the Fifth Annual The Americas Business Forum - Creating Jobs Through Exports
Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa announced the launch of the Los Angeles Regional Export Council (LARExC) in November 2011.
Creating Jobs Through Foreign Direct Investment & Exports
Investment and Trade Services
The Los Angeles Regional Export Council (LARExC) was established following the recommendations of the Brookings Institution. Since 2009, Brookings has provided LARExC guidance and counsel to continue developing export and foreign investment initiatives to create regional employment. LARExC is non-profit, non-partisan, membership-based organization serving the Los Angeles region to promote and facilitate global trade and investment.
The Americas Business Forum is not just about connections but results. There is nothing like meeting face to face with people and building those relationships. L.A. seeks to be the most prominent hub and is brimming with opportunity. As mayor I will have a laser like focus on trade and jobs ... and together we will be stronger.
Mayor Eric Garcetti, City of Los Angeles (September 2013)
We in Los Angeles are not waiting for Washington to create jobs. We launched the Los Angeles Regional Export Council to help make it easier for local businesses to find the export assistance they need to grow their businesses and create new jobs.
