PORTLAND, Maine — The Maine International Trade Center has organized a trade mission next spring to South Korea to promote the state’s educational institutions and its renewable energy assets.

Trade center president Janine Bisaillon-Cary said Korea has emerged as a major player in the wind and renewable energy industry, with many Korean companies seeking investment opportunities.

Trade mission participants will participate in business-to-business matchmaking opportunities, while a seminar will promote Maine as a place where Korean companies might want to invest.

The trip will also give Maine schools an opportunity to promote the state as a good destination for students seeking an education in the U.S.

The trade mission will run from April 3 to 9 and visit the cities of Seoul, Daegu and Busan.
