DECSC along with the U.S. Commercial Service of the U.S. Department of Commerce offer four ways to grow international sales for California-based companies looking to expand their business overseas:
– World-class market research
– Trade events that promote your product or service to qualified buyers
– Introductions to qualified buyers and distributors
The District Export Councils contribute leadership and international trade expertise to complement the U.S. Commercial Service’s export promotion efforts through counseling businesses and conducting trade education and community outreach.
District Export Councils (DECs) are organizations of leaders from the local business community, appointed by successive U.S. Secretaries of Commerce, whose knowledge of international business provides a source of professional advice for local firms.
For over 30 years, DECs have served the United States by assisting companies in their local communities export, thus promoting our country’s economic growth and creating new and higher-paying jobs for their communities. Closely affiliated with the U.S. Commerce Department’s U.S. Export Assistance Centers, the 59 DECs combine the energies of approx. 1,500 exporters and export service providers who support the U.S. Government’s export promotion efforts throughout the country.
