Economic forum brings international investors to Toledo

The University of Toledo is helping spur international development in northwest Ohio by partnering with 5 Lakes Global and the Regional Growth Partnership to bring a group of international business development leaders to Toledo. From Sept. 24 to 26, more than two hundred people will attend the 5 Lakes Global Economic Forum at the Park Inn hotel in downtown Toledo.

As part of the forum, The University of Toledo will be holding an education panel from 4 to 6 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 25 where schools and universities will have the opportunity to share information on what makes their educational institution a unique outlet for the employees and families of overseas executives and workers who elect to become members of our community.

“Northwest Ohio has so much to offer from an educational and research standpoint,’ said Lawrence J. Burns, UT vice president for external affairs. “This forum represents a tremendous opportunity to showcase this strength to a group of potential overseas partners.”
