Auto Care Association Plans Trade Missions to Latin America

Posted on February 10, 2016

Registration is open for companies interested in joining trade missions to Latin America, hosted by the Auto Care Association. The trade missions will take place May 17-19, in Peru and June 21-22 in Guatemala with an optional stop in El Salvador, June 23-24.

The association's trade missions are a part of the Market Development Cooperator Program (MDCP) award the association recently received from the U.S. Department of Commerce to help the automotive industry increase exports to free trade agreement partners in Central and South America.

“Trade missions are a cost-effective opportunity to gain first-hand market intelligence and open doors for U.S. companies seeking to enter and expand their presence in these growing markets,” says Bill Hanvey, CEO and president of the association. “They also allow U.S. companies to pursue export opportunities by meeting directly with pre-screened potential clients in target markets.”

Trade mission packages start at $3,500 for Peru and $2,500 for Guatemala. The packages include personalized business-to-business matchmaking meetings with foreign industry executives who are pre-screened to match companies' specific business objectives, hotel accommodations and local transportation, networking receptions, interpreters, and market overview briefings.

Participants may be eligible for a $1,500 reimbursement of the trade mission costs after fulfilling certain reporting requirements. Participation is limited to companies seeking to export goods or services produced in the U.S., or goods or services that contain at least 51% U.S. content.
