OZARK -- City leaders and economic developers in Ozark have a positive outlook for what Chinese manufacturers could bring to the Wiregrass.
Ozark plans on sending representatives to this weeks U.S. China Manufacturing Symposium to support not only Dale County, but the Wiregrass as a whole.
They said there are no concrete plans for what changes could come to Ozark, but they are looking forward to having some of their questions answered during this week's gathering.
"This will be a learning experience for us and I'm sure it will be a learning experience for them," Mayor Blackwell said. "So we want to get to know each other and establish those relationships so we can take the next step and begin doing business together."
Mayor Blackwell said he know the diverse and supportive Ozark community will adapt to any future changes that may come from the China symposium.
