Honoring Businesses That Export

West Virginia companies were presented with the Governor's Commendation for International Market Entry Award, recognizing businesses that exported to a new country in the previous year.
"We in government try to encourage business, try to encourage the people who are already here, building businesses and bringing in revenue," Hall [Gov. Jim Justice's chief of staff, Mike Hall] said. "This award is given to companies that made their first sale to a new country in the previous calendar year. Since 2002, more than 2,200 awards have been presented to 169 companies that have sold products to 188 countries around the world. On behalf of the governor, I thank you and I congratulate you."
