State Officials Prepare for Trade, Investment Mission


Off to Europe

Gov. Frank Keating and officials from the Oklahoma Department of Commerce will depart Saturday for an eight-day European trade and investment mission to Germany, England and France.

Keating, Chief of Staff Howard Barnett and Commerce officials are scheduled to meet with government and business leaders to discuss investment and trade opportunities with European companies, specifically those who export heavily to the United States.

"The people of Oklahoma understand that to be truly competitive in today's world economy, we must work together to build global business partnerships," Keating said.

Keating is scheduled to meet with French aerospace executives from the Toulouse area and representatives from the Foreign Ministry of the United Kingdom. He is also scheduled to meet with prominent French business leaders at the U.S. Embassy in Paris as well as a 26- member delegation from Pawhuska who are in France for the signing of a Sister City agreement with Montauban, France.

A marriage with Ecuador

Gov. Frank Keating and Ecuador's Ambassador to the United States, Ivonne A-Baki, have signed an agreement designed to strengthen both Oklahoma and Ecuador.

The agreement calls for government agencies, universities and private-sector businesses in Oklahoma and Ecuador to establish a working relationship in which economic development strategies and processes will be shared. The goal is to boost Ecuador's economy and improve relations between Oklahoma and the Central American country. The pact is contingent on the awarding of a federal grant that will enable the University of Oklahoma and Oklahoma State University, along with several state government agencies -- including the Department of Commerce, Department of Vocational and Technical Education, Department of Energy and Department of Agriculture -- to provide economic development training to Ecuador.

The International Division of the Oklahoma Department of Commerce has applied for the grant. The proposal includes energy and agricultural development programs and training that would be provided to Ecuador.
