Idaho businesses have contributed more than $100,000 to host the 19th annual meeting of a regional economic development and environmental organization for five Northwest states and Northwest Canada.

"I'm excited about it," said Gov. Butch Otter at a Wednesday news conference touting the meeting of the Pacific NorthWest Economic Region http://www.pnwer.org/ , which runs from July 12 through July 16 at the Boise Centre on The Grove.

"The importance of Canada to Idaho can't be overestimated," said state Rep. Max Black, R-Boise, a former president of PNWER. "Canada bought $1 billion in goods from Idaho last year."
