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 executive director Brent Christensen says opportunities exist in the region for Mississippi businesses in a variety of sectors, including information technology, agricultural products, medical equipment and more. 

 

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

 

The Small Business Administration-funded Mississippi State Trade Export Promotion program reimburses eligible businesses up to 50 percent of their travel costs and provides interpretation services. 

 

The deadline to register is June 27.
