International representatives from the Washington State Departments of Agriculture and Commerce will be here in the state to meet with companies and talk about opportunities for new and expanded export business during the week of March 15 - 19.
On Monday, the Department of Agriculture's International Marketing Program will bring its trade representatives covering Japan, China and Taiwan to the Tri-Cities. Company appointments have been scheduled throughout the day on Monday, March 15, at the Tri-Cities Business and Visitor Center. Companies will have the opportunity to meet with WSDA trade reps to gain information on doing business in these three markets, identify potential new business partners and work on company specific issues they are facing in these markets. Meetings will be held in Yakima, Tacoma and Seattle the remainder of the week. WSDA's International Marketing Program partners with Washington's food and agriculture industry to help producers and companies sell their products overseas by matching qualified buyers with sellers and by mitigating market access barriers for Washington food products.
