Business Associate travel expense deductibe?

I am a sole proprietor, and I would like to cover the travel expenses of a foreign business associate who is coming to visit me for business purposes. Are these expenses deductible for my business if I cover his travel costs? I understand that if we were travelling together, then his expenses would be deductible. In this case, however, he is simply coming to visit me. Thanks.

If the foreign business associate ( subcontractor etc. ) is coming to the USA for business purposes  ( training , product/service  education etc. )  i.e. for the benefit of your business ONLY, then you should be able  include this as a business expense  on your schedule-C.
