OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) _ Members of the State Chamber will have new access to experts in international business development under an agreement the business group announced Wednesday.

The services will be provided by The GTD Group, an Oklahoma-based business consulting firm and Washington-based BKSH & Associates, an international lobbying and international relations company.

Dick Rush, the chamber's president, said members of the business group would have access to the services of these two companies for a fee.

He said this will give small- and medium-sized companies business connections they otherwise would not have access to.

Oklahoma exports increased nearly 36 percent from 2004 through 2005.
