Los Angeles First Stop for Foster on US Trade Mission

Jun 24, 2014

Enterprise, Trade and Investment Minister Arlene Foster is leading a trade mission to the USA’s West Coast.

The Minister begins the four-day visit in Los Angeles, before moving on to San Diego, San Francisco and Chicago to support local companies in their efforts to secure export business and to meet with potential and existing investors.

Arlene Foster said: “Overseas visits are vitally important to our continuing relationships with international investors and trade partners.

As well as meeting existing investors, I will also hold private meetings with potential investors who are either at an early stage of considering Northern Ireland as a potential location, or are close to finalising their plans.

We have been told numerous times that potential investors appreciate the direct access to Government that these meetings provide and I am confident that my programme of visits this week will produce good results for Northern Ireland.”

While in the US, Arlene Foster will also lead a trade mission of 13 businesses and organisations who will be exhibiting at San Diego’s BIO International Convention, the world’s leading Life Sciences exhibition.

Arlene Foster added: “By exhibiting at BIO, either on the Invest Northern Ireland stand or by themselves, our companies can reach influential decision makers who come to BIO to discover new players in the industry, form partnerships and evaluate emerging technologies.
