VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) -

Business leaders from around the world are in south Georgia to build relationships with industries here.

About a dozen international trade representatives from countries such as China and Brazil toured Steeda Autosports in Valdosta today. The goal of the visit set up by the Georgia Department of Economic Development is to help Georgia businesses market themselves to international customers. 

"When the international representatives come in each year, this is an opportunity for them to learn more about our state," said Kathee Falls, Director of International Trade for the Georgia Department of Economic Development. "They come in once a year to learn more about our state so when they go back they're better prepared to sell Georgia."

Organizers of the tour try to expose the international representatives to as many regions of Georgia as possible.
