First Minister Carwyn Jones is to travel to the USA in an attempt to raise the profile of Wales.
Speaking ahead of his visit he said,
It is the largest single destination for UK exports and is one of the biggest markets for Wales in terms of international trade.
Our programme of trade missions includes six further visits to the USA between now and the end of March 2015 - the first of which will be a delegation of more than 20 companies on a trade mission to San Francisco next month.
We have a clear message - we are a great location for business, with a skilled workforce, access to the European Single Market and a unique package of support.
