Sonny Perdue on Foreign Policy

Republican GA Governor

 


Lead business & trade delegation to Cuba

Governor Sonny Perdue will lead a 43-person delegation in a business mission to explore trade opportunities with Cuba, the Governor's office announced today. The group will leave for Havana Sunday, June 6 and return to Georgia Tuesday, June 8.

"Our intent with this mission is to develop relationships that can bring more business for our companies and for the state," said Governor Perdue. "The global accessibility we can provide through the Georgia Ports and Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport already position Georgia as a prime trade partner for Cuba, and open other economic development opportunities for us as well."

Governor Perdue will lead the group in a business roundtable with Alimport, Cuba's primary purchasing agency for commodities, on June 7. The Governor will also meet with senior officials from the Ministry of Foreign Relations and other Cuban government leaders.
