Certified Trade Missions Program
Certified Trade Missions Program - U.S.
Former name : state / industry organized, government approved (S/IOGA). The U.S. Department of Commerce, through its Certified Trade Missions Program, offers guid¬ance and assistance to federal, state and local development agencies, chambers of commerce, industry trade associations, and other export-oriented groups that arc interested in becom¬ing more actively involved in export promotion. Certified Trade Missions open doors to government and business lead¬ers in promising export markets around the world.
Once the sponsoring organization has selected the coun¬tries to be considered, proposed an itinerary, and outlined its mission goals and objectives, the Department of Com¬merce coordinates the mission itinerary with its commer¬cial staff at U.S. embassies and consulates overseas. These posts help to arrange the mission’s activities to make the most productive use of each member’s time at each stop on the itinerary. Some missions also include informational or technical seminars specifically designed to exhibit and promote sales of sophisticated products, technology, or services in targeted markets.
