Governor Corbett To Lead PA Delegation To Brazil And Chile To Develop New Opportunities For Investment And Job Growth

HARRISBURG, Pa., April 3, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Governor Tom Corbett departs this weekend for Brazil and Chile where he will lead a delegation of Pennsylvania business, tourism and university leaders on a business development mission that will focus on creating new economic opportunities for job growth.

The three-city, two-country mission, privately funded by Team Pennsylvania Foundation, is scheduled for April 6-16 and will include stops in the Brazilian cities of Sao Paulo and Rio de Janeiro, along with Santiago, Chile.

"I am leading this delegation to Brazil and Chile to open new doors for economic growth and job creation and to keep Pennsylvania at the forefront of international business development," Corbett said.

Corbett will be joined by 19 businesses, both large and small, from across the state and across all industry sectors.

Fluortek, Inc., headquartered in Easton, specializes in custom dimensioned tubing for medical device applications and will look to connect with potential clients. Brookville Equipment, headquartered in Jefferson County, manufactures rail-mounted and rubber-tired locomotives used primarily in the mining industry and will look to tap into the Brazilian and Chilean mining supply chain.

Additional companies attending the mission represent the energy, life sciences, manufacturing, technology, mining and equipment, and transportation and logistics industries.

"With more than 15,000 Pennsylvania businesses currently selling goods and services abroad supporting nearly 400,000 jobs here at home, exports will continue to be a critical component of our economy," Corbett said. "Strengthening our trade relationships with Brazil and Chile will lead to new export growth and jobs for Pennsylvanians."

Companies joining the mission will receive personalized market intelligence and industry information, a customized schedule of pre-arranged, one-on-one appointments with business partners, in-country logistics assistance, and consultations with trade experts before, during and after the mission to assist with all aspects of its business development strategy.
