The Georgia Department of Industry, Trade and Tourism (GDITT) is leading a trade mission to Southeast Asia timed to coincide with the International Enterprise Environmental Protection Technology Exhibition (IEEPTE) to be held in Taiwan March 17?19.  The cost for participating in the trip is $6,500 per person, but may be reduced should a U.S. AID grant be awarded to help finance the mission.

The three?week trek will offer Georgia environmental technology companies, including service firms, a chance to conduct one?on?one meetings with decision?makers in Thailand, Indonesia, Malaysia, Taiwan and the Philippines, said GDITT executive Kevin Langston.

GDITT is working with Dale Threadgill of the Georgia Environmental Technology Consortium (GETC) to identify possible participants. The GETC is one of the three divisions of the Georgia Research Alliance (GRA), a state sponsored initiative designed to boost the state’s high-technology businesses.  Mr. Threadgill is targeting construction and pollution abatement engineering firms for the mission, but said  that other environmental firms also are encouraged to join.
