Steeda Autosports Attends Go Global Seminar to Discuss International Trade Opportunities

Valdosta, Georgia – The Valdosta-Lowndes County Industrial Authority (VLCIA) with Dario Orlando President, President of Steeda Autosports attended the The Georgia Department of Economic Development (GDEcD) International Trade Team’s Global Market Insights seminar with 10 International Directors from overseas offices, including; Brazil, Canada, China, Chile, Europe, Israel, Japan, Korea, Mexico and the United Kingdom.

Georgia’s international representatives are experts in their fields and keep the state of Georgia globally competitive by helping make Georgia communities the leading location for international investment, and outstanding source for quality products and services. Existing Georgia Companies engaged in international trade or considering growth through international trade had the opportunity during the Go Global seminar to learn first-hand about strategic world markets, and the opportunity to explore export and investment opportunities.

“The state of Georgia’s Go Global presentation provided a wealth of information on the economic conditions of international markets,” said Mr. Orlando. “As well as provided the opportunity for Steeda to establish a relationship with representatives in Georgia’s International Offices in China where Steeda is currently emerging in the marketplace for auto performance parts.”

Andrea Schruijer, VLCIA Executive Director added, “This event was instrumental in our efforts to supporting our existing industries. Through the resources at the Department of Economic Development, we were able to introduce an existing industry to key partners that will assist them, increasing foreign trade here in Valdosta-Lowndes County.”
