BANGOR, Maine (NEWS CENTER)-- Several people gathered at Husson University on Saturday to learn about potential business opportunities in China.

The Maine Chinese Language and Business Conference had several speakers talk about their experiences in doing business in China. There was also a speaker who talked about negotiating business deals in China.

Gerry Palmer is the director of the international business division at the Chinese Language and Culture Center of Maine. He thinks there are a couple of ways to get Maine products to China to help boost the state's economy.

"We need to use real time internet, visual communications for two things. One, is for to do trade where we have translators who can speak Chinese to Chinese buyers, and people who can speak English and be able to see what the issues are in the people," Palmer said

Palmer believes some of Maine's top exports to China could be agricultural products such as potatoes, lobster and blueberries.
