Next week, Missouri Governor Mike Parson and his wife Terresa will travel to Greece and Israel to promote the Show-Me-State as business-friendly. KRPS’s Fred Fletcher-Fierro has more.
The Parsons will leave on their seven-day long trip to Israel and Greece next Tuesday, December 2. The Governor is looking to strengthen and further develop already existing business ties between the two counties and Missouri. Israel and Greece are key trade partners for the state, with nearly $54 million in imports and more than $12 million in exports in 2020 alone. As part of this Parson will take part in an ag-tech roundtable discussion in Tel Aviv alongside GlobalSTL, a Missouri organization that aims to recruit high-growth international companies to establish headquarters in St. Louis.
Governor Parson will also be a keynote speaker at the Greek Economic Summit and take part in a business roundtable discussion hosted by the American Chamber of Commerce. This is the first time the Parsons will travel internationally since the start of the pandemic. For 89 9 KRPS, I’m Fred Fletcher-Fierro
