The information provided seeks to build public awareness about the importance of international trade in goods and services to the New York metropolitan region, to educate the community about the direct and indirect benefits of trade to our economy and to provide information to the community about how to explore and engage in international trade.

One reason New York is the right place to do international business is that the city offers access to a wealth of resources not found anywhere else. World-class public libraries offer training for beginners in the area of import/export, where sophisticated databases for market research as well as access to exciting information that can help you understand countries, cultures and overseas business practices. Local universities, among the most internationally diverse in the United States, provide research and education about international markets and business strategies and operations.

New York is also home to one of the largest foreign consular communities in the world as well as bi-national chambers that build bridges between the business communities in the U.S. and abroad. Local chambers of commerce, international industry and business organizations and non-profits provide important international perspectives and links to overseas businesses both large and small. And local, state and federal agencies work to promote New York businesses around the world.

Together these resources provide information, training, tools and networks to help New York businesses succeed.
