MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Gov. Scott Walker’s job-creation agency is inviting Wisconsin exporters on a May trade mission to South Korea.

Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation officials plan to visit to Seoul, Daejeon and Daegu between May 21 and May 28. Trip participants will meet with potential trade partners selected specifically for them and their markets as well as receive a South Korean market assessment specific to his or her company.

According to WEDC’s registration website, the first participant from a Wisconsin goods or services exporter will have to pay $1,350 to join the trip. Additional participants from state exporters will have to pay a $1,500 fee. Participants who aren’t exporters will have to pay the full $10,300 non-subsidized cost of the trip.

According to WEDC, South Korea ranks among Wisconsin’s top 10 export destinations.
