Loudoun County’s International Business Development Manager Bob McCollar is making an economic development trip to Asia and will spend almost two weeks in China beginning September 13.

While in China, McCollar will participate in the 5th annual Beijing Global Friend Airports CEO Forum, which will have participation from CEOs from all over the world. He’ll also give a presentation on “Government and Innovation: How Loudoun County Is Leading the Way” at the Shanghai International Technology Expo.

“China is spending hundreds of billions of dollars in foreign direct investment – they’re the world’s number one source of FDI,” McCollar says. “We invite Chinese executives to consider Loudoun as a location for their business. As more Chinese firms locate and thrive in Loudoun, those companies will reduce the tax burden on Loudoun residents.”

From China, McCollar will join officials from SelectUSA for four days in Taiwan, where U.S. economic development organizations will meet with representatives from Taiwan’s IT, semiconductor, and renewable energy industries. SelectUSA is a federal government program housed in the U.S. Department of Commerce.

International companies considering Loudoun as a business location are invited to contact Bob McCollar at 703-777-0426 or by email.
