President Potter travels on trade mission
Saturday, December 26, 2009
President Earl H. Potter III was among the members of a delegation that accompanied Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty on a trade mission Dec. 5-12 to South America.
The delegation, consisting of manufacturers, consultants, developers, academic institutions, agricultural organizations and service providers, traveled to Brazil and Chile. Pawlenty accompanied Potter on a side trip to Concepcion, Chile, where St. Cloud State has a study-abroad partnership.
CentraCare, St. Cloud State and the regional hospital in Concepcion are investigating research agreements and training methods to provide health care services. Potter hopes St. Cloud’s relationship with the State of Minnesota will be strengthened by the trip.
