Mayor Tony Mack’s new commission to build trade relations with West Africa, Caribbean

TRENTON — With a new international business commission created late last year, Mayor Tony Mack is hoping to expand the city’s economic frontiers and build new relationships with trading partners in West Africa and the Caribbean.

Members of Mack’s new Commission on International Business Affairs will be sworn in Friday during a ceremony at the Trenton Marriott. As part of its first official duties, commission members will meet delegates from Ghana, Burkina Faso, Botswana and the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago in hopes of yielding new economic opportunities for city businesses.

The commission was created through an executive order in October.

“Our sole focus is developing trade missions with foreign governments to do business with companies in Mercer County and in Trenton,” CIBA marketing and outreach director Wayne Browne said. “That’s the main thing, to get them to learn about the goods and services that’s available from Trenton-area businesses.”

Ambassadors to the United States from the West African countries as well as a handful of government ministers are expected to attend.

The new commission is co-chaired by city businessman Shelley Zeiger, who helped develop the Marriott project, and Azuka Anyiam, president of the Philadelphia-based African and Caribbean Business Council.

Trenton Readies Its Presence On The Global Markets Stage

The city of Trenton is about to widen its scope and its impact beyond the borders of New
Jersey and the United States of America. In fact, Trenton is poised to become a player of international significance as it steps out on the global stage of trade, commerce, tourism and investments.

Samuel T. Blango III, President of SECCOM International Group, LLC, is widely given credit for convincing public and private leaders to work together for the common purpose of making Trenton generator of jobs and wealth through economic initiatives and cultural exchanges around the globe.

Following his call, in October 2011, Mayor Tony F. Mack signed an Executive Order which created the Mayor’s Commission on International Business Affairs (CIBA). Currently organizing the structure and operations of CIBA, a cross-section of leading Trenton area businesses, organizations and representatives of the public and private sectors came together for a significant purpose – to enhance the economic empowerment of the city of Trenton.

CIBA will make its public bow on January 20, 2012 at the Downtown Marriot in Trenton where Mayor Mack will officially swear-in the 9-member Commission and the advisors to the Commission starting at 2 pm.

Commission co-chairman Shelley M. Zeiger explains the working vision of the group and what the people of the Trenton region can expect through the work of the Commission.

“Our vision is guided by two fundamental principles that provide the foundation for all of our activities: Organizational Excellence and Core Values. The Commission will be known for reliability, honest trade relationships with our partner countries around the world and innovation that will benefit the City of Trenton. Growth, longevity and financial sustainability will naturally follow. We will make this happen in an enriching environment of trust, cooperation and mutual respect,” he said.

Mayor Mack expressed confidence in CIBA and looks forward its work which will hopefully create revenue for the cash-strapped city. “I am very confident that through the fine work of the progressive people I’ve appointed to this Commission, that the people and businesses operating within the Trenton region will not only benefit directly through sustainable trade agreements we expect to develop, but I’m equally confidant that we can create hundreds of jobs for our people as well,” he said.

Later that day, CIBA will host four Ambassadors at the same location who are scheduled to meet with various business members of the Mercer Regional Chamber of Commerce and other business, political and community leaders.

“We will serve as host for Ambassadors representing Ghana, Burkina Faso and Botswana of Africa, and the Ambassador representing Trinidad and Tobago, to engage in preliminary talks aimed at creating working trade agreements,” said Dr. Azuka Anyiam, co chairman of CIBA. “The areas of discussion will center on energy, environment, mining and agriculture. The Ambassadors will work to make a case for trade missions to their countries.”

CIBA hopes the results of its work will benefit the people of Trenton through the creation of short-term and long-term jobs. Stay tuned.
