About the Mexico trade mission
Delaware’s in-country trade representative, Miguel de Regil, will arrange business meetings with distributors, agents and customers tailored to the needs of the attendees. He will also host a prep session and an in-country briefing prior to the meetings.
Transportation and interpreters will be provided, as well as onsite assistance by Miguel and Global Delaware staff.
There will be a debrief session upon return to Delaware to determine follow-up required.
