MONTGOMERY, Alabama – An Alabama delegation on a Southeast Asia trade mission headed home today after meetings in Singapore, capping a coordinated, 13-day overseas visit that also allowed the group to make business connections in Indonesia and Thailand.
While in Singapore, one of the world’s major commercial hubs, the Alabama team received a briefing from U.S. Embassy officials and held meetings with local business contacts. Similar matchmaking appointments also were held in Jakarta, Indonesia, and Bangkok, Thailand.
Courtney Kershaw of Montgomery’s Knox Kershaw, a maker of railway maintenance equipment, said the business meetings on the Southeast Asia trade mission were productive. She was joined on the mission by Jaky Felix, sales manager at the company, which has customers all over the globe.
