Exploring opportunities in China via Dothan, Ala.

West Memphis Economic Development director Ward Wimbish is attending the U.S./China Manufacturing Symposium this weekend in Dothan, Ala., along with Mark Hamer from Arkansas Economic Development Council.

Billed as a way to build relationships with Chinese companies and bring jobs to the states, the event is attracting more than 150 Chinese business executives representing advanced manufacturing, textile, communication technology and other industries. The West Memphis Economic Development office is a sponsor and the city is the only Arkansas municipality being represented. Read more about the conference in this story from The Dothan Eagle.
