Chamber of Commerce Trip To China

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS, Mont. -

This is the third year in a row the Billings Chamber of Commerce has offered an international awareness trip to China.

It is an eight-day trip to learn about their economy, history, tourism, and how they do business. They will spend three days in Beijing, and several days in Shanghai.

Travelers will learn about different industries, and how China markets and distributes certain products.

The Chamber's Director of Operations, Jennifer Reiser, says past trips have been a hit with attendees, and this year should prove to be no different.

"They highly recommend it to their friends. It's a great value. This trip is something that you know sometimes China is not necessarily a place people would want to travel to on their own. So, it's a great opportunity to go with a group," said Reiser.

The Chamber is exploring opportunities for a different country next year. You can learn more at www.billingschamber.com.

    It's often confusing for women to know when and how often to get a mammogram. Now a new study may help clear up that debate. Researchers compared three of the most common recommendations for screening mammography. They found beginning yearly screenings at age 40 would reduce the number of breast cancer deaths by 40%. That's significantly more than guidelines that call for less frequent screenings starting at older ages.
