JACKSON, Mississippi — The Mississippi Development Authority will lead a delegation of Mississippi companies on a business development mission to the Pacific Alliance on July 13-21.
MDA officials say in a news release that the trip will include visits with business leaders from Colombia, Peru and Chile.
Officials say U.S. exports to those countries include military equipment, oil and gas machinery and services, medical equipment, mining equipment, construction equipment, and automotive parts and accessories.
MDA works with potential buyers, distributors and businesses in the region before meeting with members of the state delegation.
The Small Business Administration-funded Mississippi State Trade Export Promotion program reimburses eligible businesses up to 50 percent of their travel costs and provides interpretation services.
The deadline to register is May 19.
