Seguin, TX - The Seguin Economic Development Corporation and GVEC Economic Development teamed up to host the European American Investment Council (EAIC) on yesterday as part of the Team Texas FAM tour around the State of Texas. Seguin was the fifth of six stops on the extensive four day tour.  The goal of the Team Texas FAM tour is to forge relationships with EAIC and to promote relationships in Europe with companies whom have expressed interest in expanding to the United States.

The EAIC members were provided a guided, one-hour bus charted tour of the Seguin community that highlighted Seguin’s strategic location, major manufacturers, ample workforce and the region’s workforce development initiatives. Seguin was chosen as a host community for the tour as a result of meeting specific size, population, and proximity criteria that most of the companies the EAIC works with are looking for.

The event was the largest attended meeting among the tour yet, those in attendance included Mayor Don Keil, Office of the Governor – Economic Development and Tourism Division representative Lindsay Dennis, Manager of the Central Texas Technology Center Chester Jenke, and representatives from economic development organizations around the State including Irving, Pflugerville, Port San Antonio, New Braunfels, and Buda. ###
