GOED Sends Business Delegation to the Phillipines

Press Release

July 18, 2013

Salt Lake City — Brett Heimburger, the Governor’s Office of Economic Development’s regional director for Asia, is leading a delegation looking to develop business partnerships and find new avenues into the Philippines.

The Philippines is the fourth largest economy in the ASEAN region, and poised for a 20-year run of strong economic growth. The island nation’s population is young and booming, with an average age of 23. On the heels of the Philippines’ significant improvements in governance and anti-corruption, the trade mission brings Manila representatives from the State of Utah as well as leaders in business, and education.

The GOED-led delegation features an array of Utah industry sectors: IT, nutraceuticals, medical devices and agriculture.

In the Philippines the delegation will conduct business-to-business company matchmaking sessions using the U.S. Commercial Service’s Gold Key Service, which locates potential business partners for trade mission companies. The delegation will also meet with the American Chamber of Commerce (AMCHAM)-Manila and American companies currently doing business in the Philippines and to learn best practices and how to succeed is this budding market.

“Like Utah, the Philippines has a well-diversified economy supported by abundant natural resources, and their growing population presents a wealth of business partnership opportunity,” Heimburger said. “GOED is pleased to work closely with some of Utah’s incredibly entrepreneurial business people eager to take their products to this exciting region.”

The delegation will also host a Utah Tourism seminar and an FDI seminar in Manila to encourage tour operations to include Utah destinations in their travel packages and promote Utah’s business friendly environment.
