Letters to the Editor


I am writing to you regarding the opinion piece [on Virginia- Business.com, June 2] authored by Ryan L. Losi, “Virginia dou- bles down on its commitment to international trade.”


I appreciate the piece rais- ing awareness about the newly created Virginia International Trade Corp. and noting how it will benefit the commonwealth. The article’s concluding para- graph states, “As Virginians, we are fortunate that our governor, Terry McAuliffe, understands the significant impact that inter- national trade has on Virginia’s economy.”


While Gov- ernor McAuliffe signed this legis- lation into law, it was the General Assembly, with strong support from the Virginia Chamber of Commerce, the Virginia Manu-


Robert Powell

Legislature passed trade bill with industry groups’ help To the Editor,


facturers Association, and the Virginia Maritime Association that made the establishment of the Virginia International Trade Corp. possible.


As the sponsor of this leg- islation, I know firsthand that the Virginia International Trade Corp. would not have come to


fruition without their efforts. I hope you will acknowledge the efforts of these organi- zations in any future articles or discussions you have regarding the Virginia Inter- national Trade Corp. Thank you for acknowl- edging the commonwealth’s efforts to foster economic development through inter- national trade.
