Port of Hueneme, California (PRWEB) May 11, 2014
A Port of Hueneme trade delegation takes off for Latin America on Sunday, May 11, 2014 with visits to Peru, Ecuador, and Chile. The delegation’s scheduled return is Wednesday May 21. The trade mission promises to serve as a catalyst for increased trade by putting the Port in direct contact with global partners and existing and prospective customers. Importantly, the Port’s trade mission aligns with President Obama’s “Look South Initiative,” a recent initiative launched to make U.S. companies aware of emerging trade opportunities in Latin America and understand the resources available to help them penetrate these markets.
