The Commerce and Export Company (CCE) of Puerto Rico announced today that from May 15 to 19 it will organize in Orlando, Florida, a multi-sector trade mission for companies wishing to start or increase their export activity.
“This market provides a window of opportunity to export local products and services in great demand, 28% of the population of this city is Hispanic and it has increased during the past months,” said CVE Executive Director Ricardo Llerandi Cruz, in a press release today.
The multi-sector trade mission to Orlando is part of the agenda of events abroad organized by the CCE to encourage the development of the export of small and medium-sized local businesses.
The official added that the businessmen participating in the event will have a schedule of business appointments with potential customers in the Orlando area.
In addition, as part of the event’s agenda, a workshop will be offered on the Florida market, its legal and logistics aspects and will participate in activities of the Puerto Rican Summit 2018.
The commercial missions are part of the Puerto Rico Emprende initiative, a business platform that seeks to promote more opportunities for the development of more local companies so that they can create jobs and be competitive locally and abroad.
The initiatives and strategies within Puerto Rico Emprende are contained in Governor Ricardo Rosselló’s Plan for Puerto Rico, which are aimed at reactivating our economy.
Llorendi recalled that next April the first commercial mission of creative industries will take place in Bogotá, Colombia, and will continue with other markets in New York and Trinidad and Tobago. (efeusa)
