Department of Commerce Organized Trade Missions

Department of Commerce trade missions are overseas programs for U.S. firms that want to explore and pursue export opportunities by meeting directly with potential clients in their markets.

Trade missions include:

  • One-to-one meetings with foreign industry executives and government officials, pre-screened to match your specific business objectives whether for representation, direct sales or joint ventures in the local market.
  • Networking events with guests from local industry multipliers including Chambers of Commerce, associations and business councils that are influential in the business community.
  • Briefings and roundtables with the legal and business community on local business practices and opportunities.
  • Site visits to local facilities where your technologies/services may be applied.
  • Media coverage.
