Woodbridge, Va – January 20, 2016 – Momentum Aerospace Group (MAG) graduated from the Virginia Economic Development Partnership’s (VEDP) Virginia Leaders in Export Trade (VALET) Program today. The graduation ceremony was held in Richmond, Virginia and attended by Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe.
“VALET is a great program that helps Virginia businesses find markets outside of the Commonwealth and the country, which is a key business expansion strategy,” said Virginia Secretary of Commerce and Trade Maurice Jones. “I congratulate these graduates and thank VEDP for its work on this incredibly important program.”
Launched in January 2002, the VALET program assists exporters in the Commonwealth that have firmly established domestic operations and are committed to international exporting as an expansion strategy. MAG was chosen based on their dedication to growth through export.
“The companies graduating this month have put in a tremendous amount of work and demonstrated their commitment to international expansion by taking advantage of the full range of resources offered by the VALET Program,” said Paul Grossman, VEDP Vice President of International Trade.
The Virginia Economic Development Partnership was created by the Virginia General Assembly to encourage, stimulate, and support the development and expansion of the economy of the Commonwealth. To accomplish its objectives of promoting economic expansion within the Commonwealth, the Partnership focuses its efforts on business recruitment, expansion and international trade.
