Minnesota Gov. Mark Dayton is currently leading a trade mission in Mexico until August 14, focusing on strengthening business, education and cultural ties with Minnesota’s second-largest export market. The trade mission will promote Minnesota exports and key industries as well as help Minnesota companies establish and build relationships with potential buyers, distributors and partners.
Thirty six delegates were chosen to accompany Gov. Dayton, including George Goblish, a member of the board of directors for the Minnesota Soybean Growers Association (MSGA).
The group spent Tuesday (August 11) meeting with officials from Mexico’s foreign affairs, agriculture, public education and trade.
Gov. Dayton and the Mexico Secretary of Foreign Affairs completed an important trade mission by signing five new agreements during those meetings Tuesday. The Governor’s office says the five memorandums of understanding will improve educational connections between Mexico and Minnesota – and support women in agriculture and business.
A more detailed article will be released once the group has returned.
