Parson’s International Trade Mission Postponed
Governor Mike Parson's international trade mission to Israel and Greece has been postponed due to recent travel restrictions, according to a press release issued by the governor on Monday.
Efforts to reschedule the trade mission are underway, additional details will be released once confirmed.
"We are postponing our trade mission because we want to respect the travel policies and practices enacted by the host countries," Governor Parson said.
