Monday, October 01, 2018
Among its high-profile and critical functions, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) monitors trade security. During the Greater Irvine Chamber’s September International Development Committee (IDC) meeting, a representative from the Southern California DHS office provided insights on the ways in which the organization protects trade in Orange County.
Discussed were the resources that the Department of Homeland Security offers to businesses with international trade relations, including providing information on trade, finance and transportation activity, trade policy, and other economic security decisions.
“It was reassuring to know that the Department of Homeland Security not only protects the U.S. against terrorism, but it also protects cyberspace, our international borders, trade flow, and how to proactively implement effective security measures,” said Linda DiMario, executive vice president of the Greater Irvine Chamber, who oversees the IDC.
During the meeting, the Foreign Direct Investment task force, and the OC International Trade Coalition provided updates on their latest progress.
