Representatives of 20 Utah companies joined Gov. Gary Herbert and others on a recent trade mission to Singapore and Vietnam.
Ten of the private companies participated in Gold Key business matchmaking services facilitated by the U.S. Commercial Service and designed to connect Utah companies with potential clients and partners in both nations.
“Trade missions facilitate opportunities for companies to build connections with potential clients and partners,” said Derek B. Miller, president and chief executive officer of World Trade Center Utah. “Singapore and Vietnam are prime markets for doing business in Asia due to their growing middle classes and ease of doing business. There is a lot of overlap in targeted industries in Utah and these countries, so the opportunities for collaboration are plentiful.”
