With the long-awaited Chinese industrial conference in Dothan ending, local city and business leaders are assessing the event and what it could mean for the area.
Headland Mayor Ray Marler said Tuesday the conference brought the chance to "interact with people from different cultures. Hopefully, we'll get more chances to interact in the future."
Marler said local cities had the chance to meet with "a lot of consultants with different firms. They seemed genuine. They seemed sincere. We had hoped to sit down with more business owners. I hope we planted a seed. I hope it attracted somebody's attention who will get back in touch with us somewhere down the road."
Marler thanked the county and chambers of commerce representatives from Headland and Abbeville who worked to hard to bring attention to the area. "Our booth was second to none. Everybody did a great job."
