TOLEDO, OH (Toledo News Now) -

Mayor Mike Bell is getting national attention for his work bringing Chinese investors to the Glass City. An article in the July 15 issue of Forbes features Bell and his efforts to grow the Toledo economy.

Forbes sat down with Mayor Bell to hear how he met and gained the trust of Chinese investors.

The article describes how the small city of Toledo was not even on the investors' radar until Bell showed up, and how he is seeking business ties with other countries, including Germany, Brazil and India.

"What I'm attempting to do is lay the foundation," Bell told Forbes. "I'm putting seeds in the ground, like a farmer…Then I get out of it and let business do what they do."
