Join Governor Tim Walz, Commissioner Thom Petersen of the Minnesota Department of Agriculture, and Minnesota Trade Office (MTO) staff at the Governor’s International Trade Awards Luncheon on Wednesday, December 14! The event will celebrate the successes of the recipients of this year’s awards and recognize the tremendous positive impact that globally engaged Minnesota and foreign-owned businesses have on the state’s economy.

Connect Your Business to the World!
This year, the MTO is excited to announce that five of our Foreign Office Representatives will be visiting Minnesota from locations throughout the world representing Canada, the European Union, Japan, the United Kingdom, and Ireland, as well as the Great Lakes and St. Lawrence Governors and Premiers Partnership which covers most other foreign office locations. Our representatives will be available on-site at this event for one-on-one conversations to discuss your business and the services the MTO offers to help you grow internationally.

Did you know? Minnesota’s businesses can utilize up to 40 hours / 2 projects of complimentary project work each fiscal year with these global experts. We hope you can take advantage of this opportunity to meet face-to-face with the MTO’s Foreign Office Representatives to discuss how we can best assist you!
