About Us

North Carolina's international business development managers help North Carolina companies successfully enter worldwide markets with value-added services including:

  • Preparing marketing plans
  • Handling export operations
  • Providing market research
  • Identifying best market prospects
  • Advising on finance and insurance options
  • Working to find customers and partners
In 2013, our team assisted 415 North Carolina companies with export development and in many cases helped these businesses position themselves for future international growth.  North Carolina exports grew 1.4% reaching an all-time high of $29.3 billion.

In October 2014, the state's export assistance team joined the Economic Development Partnership of North Carolina (EDPNC), a new public-private organization that leads the state's marketing and business development activity.  North Carolina companies interested in exporting should now contact the EDPNC for assistance.
