Midamar invited to White House to advise President on economic stimuli
(Cedar Rapids, IA, December 10, 2009) Bill Aossey, President of Midamar Corporation was invited to Washington as a member of an exclusive group of business owners, CEO’s and community leaders to advise the President of the United States, Barak Obama on practical ways to stimulate economic growth and job creation.
Over the past 35 years, Aossey has built a halal food company that has experienced dramatically increasing international sales. Midamar Corporation has developed a reservoir of expertise in international marketing, sales and exporting that is recognized by both business and governmental institutions.
Previously, Aossey had received the prestigious President’s “Excellence for Export Service Award,” from President George Bush, a distinctive honor to be placed alongside numerous other awards recognizing Midamar’s role in supporting agriculture and food producing economies like that of the American Midwest.
In recognition of the fact that selling US products overseas aids in economic growth and job creation, Aossey was invited to give President Obama and his administration some ideas and advice on what the US government can do to stimulate export of US products abroad.
Aossey advised President Obama to ease restrictions on student visas and visas from foreign business people from developing countries where American products and services are in demand.
“We need to bring more foreign students and executives here to increase trade and investment.”
In addition, American business people need to get over their fear of the unknown and start travelling, learning and developing relationships with businesses in foreign countries.
“I agreed with him that security is very important, but a phobia has developed (amongst Americans) that the world is very dangerous,” Aossey said. “That’s just not the case.”
