Bethlehem will host one of the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development events that will mark Pennsylvania International Week next week.

The intent of Pennsylvania International Week (Sept. 16-27) is to encourage Pennsylvania companies looking to grow internationally.

Bethlehem will be home to an event at 2 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 26, at Ben Franklin Technology Partners of Northeast Pennsylvania on the campus of Lehigh University.

Pennsylvania trade representatives will meet with companies seeking foreign market intelligence, agent and distributor candidates and industry or government contacts.

The week actually is two weeks, as the DCED noted that the week evolved into a longer event to meet the growing demands for participation.
