Back in Business: New Hampshire Bagpipe Maker Receives Permits

Concord, NH – Governor Chris Sununu and Gibson Bagpipes LLC issued the following statements after Gibson Bagpipes received their CITES permits yesterday morning:

"We will not let government bureaucracy stand in the way of helping small businesses," said Governor Chris Sununu. "Working with the Administration, I am proud to say that Gibson Bagpipes received their long-awaited permit yesterday morning. These much needed permits will allow Gibson Bagpipes to export their first-class product to countries across the world – and serves as another example of a New Hampshire small-business with a global impact."
