The Miami-Dade County Department of Regulatory and Economic Resources, Economic Development and International Trade (EDIT) Unit, will host an in-bound business trade delegation from Martinique, from November 9 to 13, 2015. For the fifth consecutive year, EDIT is organizing meetings and assisting with on-site program planning for the Martinique trade delegation to facilitate business opportunities with their counterparts in Miami-Dade.

The Martinique in-bound mission coincides with French Week activities, and will also include business-to-business (B2B) matchmaking with local Miami-Dade businesses, organized tours of trade facilities, scheduled meetings with Economic Development Agencies and the Martinique Spice & French Fashion Show on November 12, which will be held at the Temple House in Miami Beach.
