Gov. Bryant to lead trade delegation to Brazil

By Associated Press

Mississippi Gov. Phil Bryant will lead a trade delegation to São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro in Brazil from Sept. 9-13.

Mississippi Development Authority is sponsoring at least two other trade trips between July and October. Bryant is not scheduled to go on the other two trips.

The MDA says the trip to Brazil and a second trip to Chile on Sept. 5 - 7 will bring Mississippi companies that want to expand trade and create new business relationships with contact with South American markets.

"Over the last few years, we have seen a significant growth in exports from Mississippi and from the U.S. as a whole to Brazil," Bryant said in statement. "The country is hosting the 2016 Summer Olympics and the 2014 FIFA World Cup, and these two events alone will require extensive infrastructure development, which is creating notable export opportunities for U.S. businesses."

Skip Scaggs, director of MDA's Existing Industry and Business Division, said MDA will match the Mississippi companies with interested Brazilian business representatives.

"This is a very cost-effective way for Mississippi businesses interested in expanding trade into Chile and Brazil to discover the possibilities that await them in these markets," he said.
