The German-American Chamber of Commerce of the South is again headed on a trade mission to Mexico in October.

The chamber stirred a bit of controversy last year as some Georgia boosters worried that it spotlighted the country’s automotive industry, a chief competitor to the Southeast U.S. for foreign investment, particularly from Germany.

German chamber leaders said the trip was organized in response to demand from its members.

This year’s trip seems to have a schedule similar to last year’s, with repeat visits to Volkswagen, Audi and Continental Tire factories working with the local branches of the German chambers of commerce. The group will also participate in a roundtable with industry associations in automotive and auto parts, along with dinner and lunch meetings with local experts.
