What is a Trade Mission?
Trade missions are led by U.S. Department of Commerce industry experts and designed for U.S. businesses who will travel to target countries. Each year, numerous U.S. companies participate in U.S. Department of Commerce-organized trade missions.
These missions can save companies valuable time and resources by maximizing contact with prospective distributors, sales representatives, or partners. Face-to-face meetings, especially when facilitated by senior U.S. government officials, can make a good impression with foreign buyers.
Benefits include: leveraging new trade leads, partnering opportunities, international sales and establishing foreign business partners, to name a few. (Trade.gov)
