New Chamber of Commerce aims to boost businesses in Flushing

More than 6,000 business owners in one of Queens’ largest commercial neighborhoods will be represented by a revamped chamber of commerce.

The new “multiethnic” Greater Flushing Chamber of Commerce will make sure small business owners’ voices are heard, officials announced Thursday.

“Flushing is more than restaurants and Chinese businesses,” said John Choe, executive director of the new group. “The businesses are very dynamic and very international.”

The chamber is open to merchants beyond the downtown Flushing business district, which is centered on Main St. and Roosevelt Ave., Choe said.

 “We want to make sure the businesses are being treated fairly and make sure they understand city and state rules and regulations,” he said.The chamber has a kick off event on Dec. 11 at Flushing Town Hall.
