We are grateful to the organizations that make our export assistance programs possible.
The Georgia District Export Council (DEC) is a non-profit organization providing a range of programs and services to help companies develop international business. For this work, it was named “2023 National DEC-of-the-Year” by the U.S. Department of Commerce. The Georgia DEC invites you to join these efforts as a member, sponsor, or partner. We are especially grateful to the following organizations for their generous support.
The U.S. Commercial Service is the trade promotion arm of the U.S. Department of Commerce’s International Trade Administration. USCS trade professionals in over 100 U.S. cities and in more than 75 countries help American companies get started in exporting and increase sales to new global markets. The Commercial Service partners with the District Export Council network, on a range of programs that help U.S. companies develop international sales. One of these is the Export-U online export training program which offers a broad range of free webinars and publications..
The Georgia Tech CIBER was created in 1993 and is one of the 15 national resource centers of excellence in international business funded by the U.S. Department of Education. It is administratively located in the Georgia Tech Scheller College of Business and also collaborates with the Ivan Allen College of Liberal Arts. Its mission is to ensure the long-term international economic competitiveness of the United States through support of research, business education initiatives, and corporate outreach activities. The CIBER often collaborates with the Georgia DEC on such programs.
From its creation in 2007, was designed as a free training resource for American businesses wishing to start or expand their international sales. Today, it is operated by the Georgia DEC in close partnership with the U.S. Commercial Service in Atlanda. Export-U program income helps support the DEC’s educational and training programs.
