The International Trade Division helps North Carolina’s small- and medium-sized businesses enter and expand global markets for their products. Each year, hundreds of North Carolina companies receive support from the export assistance team, which includes international trade managers headquartered in North Carolina and offices in Canada, China, Japan, Mexico, Europe and South Korea.

North Carolina businesses exported over $30 billion in merchandise to international markets in 2015, and North Carolina exports have increased by more than 40 percent in the past decade.


Our International Trade Division provides services in a number of areas, including trade show assistance, market entry strategy, advocacy and more.
