Spacelabs Healthcare Selected to Join U.S. Secretary of Commerce Penny Pritzker on Her First Trade Mission
SNOQUALMIE, Wash. --(Business Wire)--
Spacelabs Healthcare today announced it will join U.S. Secretary of
Commerce Penny Pritzker on her first-ever trade mission to Mexico from
February 3-7. The trade mission is focused on promoting U.S. exports and
business opportunities in key industry sectors, including advanced
manufacturing, information and communications technology, and health IT
and medical devices. The delegation will make stops in Mexico City and
"We are really excited to join Secretary Pritzker on this trip to
Mexico, which is a rapidly growing market for us," said Spacelabs
President Nicholas Ong. "This trade mission provides us with a unique
opportunity to build new relationships, explore future opportunities and
find ways to further our company mission to bring the best care
experience to patients and their families."
In a release from the Department of Commerce earlier this month,
Secretary Pritzker explained why she believes international trade
missions are so important for companies like Spacelabs.
"As the country's Chief Commercial Advocate, a key part of my job is to
promote trade and investment and connect U.S. businesses with potential
customers across the globe," said U.S. Secretary of Commerce Penny
Pritkzer. "Ninety-five percent of customers worldwide live outside U.S.
borders, and that is why promoting exports is essential to economic
growth and job creaton."
Spacelabs is one of 17 export-ready U.S. companies who will take part in
the trade mission. Participants will meet with prescreened potential
partners, agents, distributors, representatives, and licensees. The
agenda will also include meetings with high-level national and local
government officials, networking opportunities, and country and industry
Dante Cifuentes, Spacelabs' Managing Director of Latin America and the
Caribbean, will join Nicholas Ong in representing Spacelabs on the trip.
