Gov. Maggie Hassan and a group of New Hampshire business representatives are on a trade mission in Turkey.  Jeffrey Rose, commissioner of the state Department of Resources and Economic Development, says Hassan's presence will help open doors to businesses seeking to connect with Turkish businesses. He says Turkey has emerged as an important market and is New Hampshire's 12th largest trading partner. New Hampshire sent $79 million in goods and services to Turkey last year.  The group is in Turkey until Friday.
