    expansion to or in?

    Hello everyone,

    I'd like to ask which preposition is correct in the following sentence:

    The Company is realizing expansion in/to the neighboring countries.

    'expansion into the neighboring countries' means the company's initial move into the neighboring countries. (not previously there)

    'expansion in the neighboring countries' means the company is increasing its presence in the neighboring countries. (was already there)
