As a business in "America's Next Great Global City", members of this Council explore international trade and investment opportunities and connect with resources that can assist with navigating foreign financing, import/export regulations, and other key components of the international business toolkit.

Speaker: Robert T. Sakowitz, CEO, Hazak Corporation
Topic: From Arabica to Zinfandel: Houston's Global Coffee and Wine Trade

As a major global city, Houston is deeply engaged in the trade of wine and coffee. Since the ports of Galveston and Houston were opened, the region has been a gateway for potent potables -from Arabica coffee beans to Zinfandel grape wines. Native Houstonian, retail icon and business consultant, Robert T. Sakowitz, will take Partnership members on an educational journey through the nuances of these surprisingly complementary goods and their business impacts. Trade data and information will be explored along with Mr. Sakowitz's perspectives on Houston's past, present, and future in these interesting and related industries.

Due to limited capacity, registration for Council luncheons is required. Partnership Councils are complimentary and open to all member company employees.
