Missouri and the U.K. are natural economic partners. Don’t believe me? Ask Missouri Partnership’s Vice President of Market Strategies and U.K. native, Mark Sutherland.
In a recent article he wrote, “For Missouri companies, the U.K. is a natural launching point into Europe. Vice versa, for British companies, entering the US through Missouri, just makes sense. From a competitive cost of doing business, to connections to anywhere, to shared business sectors, to talent, to innovation, to a phenomenal work ethic, the Brits and Missourians are rather similar to each other, despite being separated by a common language.”
In May of this year Missouri Partnership will be participating in the British-American Business Council Transatlantic Conference to build on the economic connections between the U.K. and Missouri.
