BRUSSELS, Belgium — Christina Stimpson, the top trade expert at the Alabama Department of Commerce, is in Belgium and Greece this week to participate in the EU-US Emerging Leaders Visitors Programme, which aims to strengthen ties between the two economic blocs.

The five-day event, organized by the European Union and the Embassy of Greece, is packed with high-level briefings from business leaders, meetings with economic and trade policy specialists, and unique networking opportunities.

Stimpson is one of 10 U.S. trade officials attending the program, whose theme is “Fostering Innovation and Investments.”

“Being able to attend this exclusive event will provide Christina with new insights into international trade opportunities that can benefit Alabama businesses and drive economic growth here at home,” said Ellen McNair, Secretary of the Alabama Department of Commerce.
