Newswise — The Georgia Department of Economic Development is leading a trade mission to Qingdao, Beijing and Shanghai China July 10 – 17. The delegation includes state of Georgia officials and business leaders who will explore business, trade, education, agriculture, and tourism opportunities.
“China is a critically important market for our
state, and Georgia’s second-largest export market,” said Georgia
Department of Economic Development Commissioner Chris Carr. “This
mission is an opportunity to increase investment opportunities by
showcasing some of Georgia’s great assets including agriculture,
education, trade and tourism.”
The mission is anchored around the
2014 Qingdao International Horticultural Exposition. Georgia was the
only U.S. state invited to showcase a garden at the exposition featuring
35 separate garden exhibits with dozens of countries and regions
participating. A dedicated group of students from the University of
Georgia designed the garden featuring flowers and plants native to
Georgia to reflect the unique character of the state. More here.
