JACKSON — The Mississippi Development Authority will lead a delegation of Mississippi companies on a business development mission to Southeast Asia from Aug. 25-29.
MDA officials say in a news release that the trip will include stops in the Philippines, Singapore and Vietnam.

MDA works with potential buyers, distributors and businesses from Southeast Asia before meeting with members of the state delegation.
