Alabama trade mission shifts focus to building ties in Uruguay

MONTEVIDEO, Uruguay – Secretary of Commerce Greg Canfield met with high-level officials in Uruguay’s capital Thursday to discuss ways to advance mutually beneficial opportunities as an Alabama trade and business development mission moved into its final phase.

Secretary Canfield, who is leading an Alabama delegation that includes eight businesses, said Thursday’s talks in Montevideo were meant to identify areas of cooperation in various industry sectors that would promote commercial arrangements and allow an exchange of best practices.

“Our two areas are very comparable in many ways and working together through all the friends we have made on this short trip will lead us to a great many long trips in the future,” he said.

The Alabama team began the mission on Monday, with meetings in Lima, Peru, before arriving in Montevideo on Wednesday.
