JACKSON — The Mississippi Development Authority will lead a delegation of business leaders on a trade mission to Costa Rica and Panama from March 20-26.

MDA executive director Gray Swoope says in a news release that the trip will help Mississippi businesses pinpoint opportunities for trade in the two Central American markets.

Swoope says exports from the U.S. and Mississippi to Costa Rica and Panama have increased over the past few years.

He says the U.S. has a free trade agreement with Costa Rica and is negotiating one with Panama.
