Open States' stated mission is to improve civic engagement.

To be true to that goal, we can not stand by and be silent when a large portion of Americans face systemic racism and other forms of oppression. That oppression has meant being excluded from civic participation at the ballot box, being called un-American for peaceful protests, and being denied justice for crimes committed against them.

Please consider giving to local causes that support racial justice in your area.

GO-BIZ: trade and investment office: Japan.

Abstract

The Economic Revitalization Act establishes the Governor's Office of Business and Economic Development, also known as "GO-Biz," to, among other duties, serve the Governor as the lead entity for economic strategy and the marketing of California on issues relating to business development, private sector investment, and economic growth. Existing law requires the director of GO-Biz to develop an International Trade and Investment Program for the state and authorizes the director to establish and terminate international trade and investment offices outside of the United States as the director determines is appropriate, if specific requirements are met. This bill, no later than January 1, 2023, upon appropriation of sufficient funds for this purpose, would require the office to establish under its jurisdiction an international trade and investment office in Tokyo, Japan. The bill would require the trade and investment office to have those powers and duties prescribed by the director to promote and facilitate the state's international trade activities and would require the trade and investment office to, among other things, promote the export of California goods and services into Japan. Existing law requires the director of GO-Biz to prepare and submit an annual budget and strategy and business plan for the International Trade and Investment Program that includes, among other things, a separately stated budget for each international trade and investment office. Existing law requires that budget and strategy and business plan to be submitted to specified legislative committees. The bill would require the director of GO-Biz to include information regarding the Japan trade and investment office in that budget and strategy and business plan for the International Trade and Investment Program.
