PKF Texas expands international relationships

PKF Texas' strong relationship with the international community in Houston begins with our 150 team members. They hail from 13 countries and speak 28 different languages. We are members of two international networks providing resources in 120 countries. To enhance our international ties Houston-based Pannell Kerr Forster of Texas, P.C. (PKF Texas) partners with the Greater Houston Partnership to present the monthly International Connections series.

Featuring a different country each month, the series provides the Houston business community the opportunity to better understand Houston's top international trade partners and interact with key officials who can help businesses expand into those markets. Consuls general, bilateral chambers of commerce and government trade officers present business opportunities and available resources. Featured countries have included Mexico, Pakistan and the United Kingdom. With 86 consulate offices, related chambers and trade offices located in Houston, there is a wealth of countries eager to present.

Spun off from the Greater Houston Partnership's 2006 International Distinguished Speaker Series, of which PKF Texas was one of several sponsors, International Connections continues to emphasize Houston's relationship with the international business community.

International Connections has proven successful as a relationship builder for all involved. The UK event, for example, continued PKF Texas' association with the UK Trade and Investment office at the British Consulate-General. We were invited to be a part of their Next Generational Biofuels conference and have encouraged clients and friends of our firm who are looking to do business in the UK to use the office as a resource.
