Walker to Lead Business Development Mission to Mexico
Wisconsin Ag Connection - 05/12/2016

Governor Scott Walker announced he will lead a business development mission to Mexico in June as a part of the state's ongoing efforts to increase exports and encourage international companies to invest in Wisconsin. The governor made the announcement at the 52nd Annual International Trade Conference in Milwaukee this week.

"We will promote Wisconsin's strong business climate, outstanding workforce, and key industry sectors as compelling assets for successful business operations in Wisconsin during our trip to Mexico, just as we did during our trips to Europe, Canada, and the United Kingdom last year," Governor Walker said. "The state of our state is strong, and this is the perfect time for businesses in Mexico to consider investing in Wisconsin."

Walker joins representatives of the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation and the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture for the trade mission, which runs from June 12-17. Together, they will meet with business and agriculture leaders regarding opportunities in new markets or to establish new operations in Wisconsin.

Stops will include Mexico City, one of the largest cities in the world with 22 million people, as well as the 2016 CIGAL Dairy Trade Show, which focuses on the dairy production sector and draws exhibitors from throughout Mexico and the United States.

State Agriculture Secretary Ben Brancel will join Walker on the mission, along with various Wisconsin business owners and representatives of the University of Wisconsin-River Falls and UW-Madison.
