We’re on a mission.

Trade missions provide Idaho companies with an unparalleled opportunity to pursue potential business partnerships, make contacts and open doors in foreign markets. Trade missions are often led by the Governor, however they can also be led by the Lt. Governor, director or other administrator. Trade missions are extremely targeted events that involve precision planning and clear goals, and often result in increased sales or company representation in new foreign markets.
