Trade mission

Stan Higgins, Nepic, 18/04/2017

Wikipedia states that a ‘trade mission is an international trip by government officials and business people that is organised by agencies of national or provincial governments for the purpose of exploring international business opportunities’. Business people who attend trade missions are typically introduced both to important business contacts and to well-placed government officials. A trade mission is a way in which countries or organisations can seek out potential buyers and sellers, usually after significant market research.
