The State of Missouri will use STEP award funds to support ESBCs to expand exports to the Middle East in key sectors, with specific focus on the United Arab Emirates, which has been identified as the market with the most potential for Missouri. Through STEP funding, ESBCs will have the opportunity to participate in a governor-led trade mission to the United Arab Emirates and to exhibit at Arab Health 2017 in Dubai, IDEX 2017 in Abu Dhabi, and GulFood 2017 in Dubai.
