CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - Gov. Maggie Hassan is going to lead a delegation of New Hampshire businesses on a June trade mission to Turkey.

Last year, New Hampshire companies and manufacturers exported more than $79 million in goods and services to Turkey.

“This trade mission will build on the progress that helped make New Hampshire the fastest-growing state for exports in 2013 by helping our businesses find new opportunities in Turkey’s growing market,” Hassan said.

Jeffrey Rose, commissioner of the Department of Resources and Economic Development, said Turkey is the state’s 12th largest trading partner. He said there are increasing opportunities there for New Hampshire businesses, especially in the areas of aerospace and defense, health and medical technologies and construction machinery.

The trade mission will take place June 20-27. Rokon International Inc., which makes all-wheel drive motorcycles and whose products are used by military personnel, missionaries, farmers and hunters around the world, is one of five companies signed up for the trade mission.

Companies interested in joining the trade mission are invited to attend an informational meeting at the Turkish Cultural Center in Manchester on Wednesday, April 2 at 8:30 a.m.
