Yes, Boeing and the Ex-Im Bank make export headlines. But, US exports also ship from thousands of small to medium sized companies throughout the nation. US shipments off-shore hit a record level of $2.2 trillion in 2012. And communities of all sizes contributed to that number. Exports play a critical role in helping to bring economic prosperity to local economies by increasing jobs and wealth, and helping to grow local industry. Companies that export have a proven track record of providing higher wages, adding jobs, spurring innovation, and bringing increased stability to their operations in times of economic downturns. Spend just one and a half hours online with us later this month to learn how to prepare your community to pump up its foreign market share.

Economic developers bring regional stakeholders together to collaborate on new economic development initiatives such as an exports-oriented effort.
