Published: January 16,2014
JACKSON — The Mississippi Development Authority will lead a delegation of Mississippi companies on a business development mission to South America from April 24-29.
MDA officials say in a news release yesterday that the trip will include stops in Paraguay and Uruguay.
They say participating companies can also make an optional stop in Brazil or Chile if they have business prospects in either country.
MDA’s Skip Scaggs says the trip is designed to connect Mississippi businesses that want to expand trade and create new business relationships in South America.
Scaggs is director of MDA’s Existing Industry and Business Division.
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 Feb. 7.
