Gov. Maggie Hassan is going to leads 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.
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.
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.
