Wisconsin Ag Connection - 03/07/2017

The Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation has announced that Lt. Governor Rebecca Kleefisch will be joining along for the group's travels to Mexico this summer in order to meet with potential customers and strengthen trade relations with the country. The trade mission will take place June 11-16, where participants will visit Mexico City and Monterrey.

With Mexico being one of the top export markets for U.S. companies, Wisconsin companies from a broad range of industries are encouraged to take part in the venture. Leading export categories from Wisconsin to Mexico include industrial and electrical machinery, vehicles and parts, plastics, and medical and scientific instruments.

"As Wisconsin's second-largest export destination, Mexico is an ideal market for Wisconsin companies of all sizes and all industries seeking to grow their business," Lt. Governor Kleefisch said. "I invite companies to join me on this trade mission for the opportunity to conduct in-person business meetings with potential partners and to establish new relationships that can lead to long-term success in exporting."

In each city, participants will be scheduled for one-on-one meetings with potential partners who are hand-picked for each company. Participants will also receive a custom Mexico market assessment detailing considerations to keep in mind when introducing a product or service into the market.

The cost to participate is $1,650, which covers market research and one-on-one appointments, transportation to business meetings, hotel accommodations for the duration of the program and some group meals.
