Minnesota Ag Connection - 08/23/2019

The Minnesota Trade Office, at the Department of Employment and Economic Development (DEED), is accepting nominations for the 33rd Annual Governor's International Trade Awards.

The Governor's International Trade Awards honor Minnesota companies that have shown exceptional progress and success in foreign markets. In addition to honoring individual recipients, the award recognizes the tremendous positive impact that exports and trade have on the state's overall economy.

"Last year, Minnesota businesses exported a record-high $23 billion worth of goods to countries all over the world," said Governor Tim Walz. "I am thrilled to recognize Minnesota businesses with an eye on the international marketplace."

"Minnesota exports support nearly 118,000 jobs statewide," said DEED Commissioner Steve Grove. "The work done by the Minnesota Trade Office ensures that any business in Minnesota, regardless of size, can compete internationally."

Nominations for the Governor's International Trade Awards will be accepted until Sept. 13. Recipients will be recognized at an awards ceremony on Oct. 11.

Additional information, as well as nomination instructions, can be found on the DEED website.
