THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) -

The visiting international consular and trade officials also made a stop in Thomasville Thursday.

Southwest Georgia Tech's Virtual Hospital and Vet Tech program were the main focus of their visit.

The officials watched as future nurses performed mock codes, procedures, and even child birth.

"We deal a lot with companies from our host countries who are coming here to Georgia. Who are looking for good places to do business. Who are looking to hook up with universities, with technical colleges. So this gives us an opportunity to find out some of the opportunities that are there," said Consul General of Ireland Paul Gleeson.

The consuls had lunch with the Thomasville-Thomas County Chamber of Commerce and Visitors Center.
