Q: So you've said that New Hampshire led the nation in export growth last year. Couldn't the same business goals be achieved for this trip without Governor Hassan or the state's involvement? A: We always want to find opportunities to expand the business relationships. Oftentimes that's what it takes. You want to build those relationships, you need to develop a rapport. Oftentimes in international business, these things can take, you know, weeks, months, years, decades.
