REDDING, Calif. -

The governor's office and the Cal Asian Chamber of Commerce were in Redding to talk about technology Thursday. Many experts got together to discuss bringing jobs to the Northstate.

Speakers from government, industry and economic development addressed critical questions about how technology and global commerce can have a positive impact on rural growth and create jobs.

Leah Goold-Haws, Global Trade Deputy Sector Navigator for Northern California said they want to create awareness for future hires.

"There is a lot of global trade that happens through the state of California, also in our northern region,” said Goold-Haws. “ It really is about increasing awareness, I think that's one of the ways that we help our students in particular to understand what these career opportunities are.”

The event lasted much of the day at the Shasta Builders Exchange Training Center.
