JACKSON, Miss. (AP) — Gov. Phil Bryant will lead a Mississippi delegation to a trade conference in South Carolina in May.

The 5th Annual Southeastern U.S.-Canadian Provinces Alliance Conference and Trade Mission is scheduled for May 20-22 in Myrtle Beach, S.C.

Bryant says in a news release that the conference is expected to attract more than 300 Canadian and U.S. business and government leaders. It will focus on the technology, advanced manufacturing, energy and logistics sectors.

Bryant says the event will include business-to-business matchmaking meetings.

Bryant says the conference is a chance to create new business relationships and build upon the close trade and investment ties that already exist between Canada and the southeastern U.S. states.
