Boise Metro Chamber Signs Partnership with Greater Bilbao Chamber

The Boise Metro Chamber of Commerce today signed an agreement with the Greater Bilbao Chamber of Commerce, officially making the two sister Chambers.

Bill Connors, President & CEO of the Boise Metro Chamber of Commerce, and Unai Rementeria, the elected Premier of the Parliament of the Basque Territory of Bizkaia, signed the agreement at a ceremony Friday morning.

“This agreement is yet another example of the special, historic relationship between Boise and our Basque partners in Bilbao,” said Bill Connors. “We look forward to continuing the very unique ties between our peoples and our businesses.”

With the signing of this agreement, preparations for a Basque trade mission to Idaho will be made for the spring of 2016 followed by an Idaho mission to the Basque Country soon thereafter. Having benefitted from more than a century of Idaho-Bizkaia relations, the Basque economy offers preferential treatment to Idaho businesses interested in European Union markets, expansion, joint ventures, and business partnerships.
