To help our members explore growth opportunities for their firms across the world and to educate our community on how we can be more welcoming to visitors and investors visiting from around the world, the Saratoga County Chamber of Commerce has become a local leader in organizing International trips to targeted areas of the world where the connections participants will make on these trips has direct value back in Saratoga County. For instance, our first-International trip was to China where participants had a chance to see first-hand how China has become the world's second largest economy. Our second International trip was to the United Arab Emirates (UAE) where delegates were hosted for a reception at ATIC/GLOBALFOUNDRIES's corporate headquarters in Abu Dhabi and had the chance to go behind the scenes of the Meydan Racecourse and to see Thoroughbred horse racing in the world's newest race course.
