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

Additionally, nine economic development and tourism groups and chambers of commerce will be a part of the delegation. They will join the governor at Pennsylvania investment seminars, and have one-on-one meetings arranged with potential investment prospects. To promote Pennsylvania as a top tourism destination, meetings are scheduled with travel agency officials to discuss conventions and group visitor potential, and to discuss cultural exchanges.

Drexel University will also join the delegation and will meet with potential university partners to discuss international student recruitment opportunities, and various joint partnerships that may be undertaken in the areas of degree-granting, research and exchanges.

First Lady Susan Corbett, Department of Community and Economic Development Secretary C. Alan Walker, Department of Labor and Industry Secretary Julia Hearthway and Public Utilities Commission Chairman Rob Powelson will be joining the governor on the mission.

On the mission, Corbett will meet with high-level Brazilian and Chilean government officials including the governor of Sao Paulo, the governor of Rio de Janeiro, and Chilean President, Sebastian Pinera. The governor will also participate in transportation, oil and gas, and mining roundtables and host Invest in PA seminars.

Additionally, the governor will have one-on-one meetings with companies that have a presence in Pennsylvania and companies that are considering investing in the state. Corbett will also participate in events to promote tourism and will host alumni of Pennsylvania colleges and universities who now live in Brazil and Chile.
