ExportDC is a program to connect DC businesses to global opportunities and prepare them to win sales overseas.

ExportDC, the District’s first major export development program, supports local businesses interested in expanding globally. More than 95 percent of the world’s population and nearly two-thirds of global purchasing power are located outside the United States. Exporting enables companies to develop a wider customer base, achieve diversification in their business portfolios, and adjust more effectively to downturns in the domestic economy. 

Because exporting contributes to economic growth and job creation in the District of Columbia, the Office of the Deputy Mayor for Planning and Economic Development (DMPED) has made it a priority to encourage more of our companies to engage in international business. If your DC-based business is committed to expanding its international presence, ExportDC is ready to help. We work closely with businesses that are new to exporting, as well as seasoned exporters seeking assistance with access to new markets.
