Jackson, Miss. The Mississippi Development Authority will lead a delegation of Mississippi companies on a business development mission to Central America from June 9-13.

MDA officials say in a news release that the trip will include stops in Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador.

MDA executive director Brent Christensen says the U.S. is the largest trade partner to Central America, and the free trade agreement in place between the U.S. and Central America allows Mississippi exports to enter the region duty-free.

MDA works with potential buyers, distributors and businesses from Central America prior to meeting with members of the state delegation.

The Small Business Administration-funded Mississippi State Trade Export Promotion program reimburses eligible businesses up to 50 percent of their travel costs and provides interpretation services.

The deadline to register is April 4.
