Trade Mission Overview 

Kansas Global Trade Services, Huffine Global Solutions, and Gedeth Network are hosting a trade mission trip to Spain October 17 – 21, 2022, for U.S. companies interested in exploring business relationships in the sustainable agriculture, green technology, NextGen digitalization, and renewable energy sectors. The mission will provide insights into doing business in Spain, tailored business-to-business meetings, networking events and conversations with federal and provincial government officials. 

The EU has provided Spain with 10 billion Euros to enhance its agricultural and energy sectors and the funds must be spent in the next two years, making this a prime opportunity for regional businesses which are, or are considering, exporting products and services.
