大法拉盛西商會 籌建

大法拉盛西商會 籌建 記者徐佳紐約報導 為讓亞裔商家更好地了解市政府各項規定措施,同時幫助外族裔商家了解亞裔社區、開展生意,由各族裔商會代表組成的「大法拉盛西商會」(Greater Flushing Chamber of Commerce)籌備委員會28日宣布成立。同時成立的還有由民選官員以及法拉盛地區商家、非營利組織代表組成的商會顧問委員會。大家希望通過6到12個月的準備工作,屆時正式成立可以服務各個族裔商家的「大法拉盛西商會」。 有80多年歷史的法拉盛西商會(Flushing Chamber of Commerce & Business Association)於今年1月底發出公告,宣布因為人口結構改變,社區變化,正式解散。為了有個組織可以服務各族裔商家,在ONE FLUSHING經濟發展中心總監崔容準(John Choe)的召集下,各族裔商會決定共同再成立一個商會。 法拉盛華人工商促進會總幹事杜彼得表示,法拉盛是一個欣欣向榮的社區,但很多外族裔的商家甚至是全國連鎖商家因為不了解亞裔社區的需要,都無法在社區裏生存下去。「大法拉盛西商會」將承擔起橋梁的作用,幫助這些商家了解亞裔社區,融入亞裔社區,開展生意,共享繁榮。 崔容準表示,在籌備階段,籌委會將舉行商家聯誼交流以及教育活動,同時招募商家成員,確定最後的細節。一旦準備完成,就正式宣布西商會的成立。 目前籌委會的成員包括來自華商會、韓裔商會、西語裔商會以及ONE FLUSHING等商會機構的代表。顧問委員會成員包括市議員顧雅明、州眾議員孟昭文、州參議員史塔文斯基(Toby Stavisky)以及來自第七社區委員會、皇后區商會、亞平會和喜來登大酒店等機構和商家的代表。 Link to original article here.
