International Market Support


International markets provide opportunities for businesses to increase sales and create jobs. Many small companies don't have the local market expertise or business relationships to expand their business into the global market.


The International Market Support Program creates opportunities worldwide through a network of eight foreign contractors in Europe, Canada, Mexico, Brazil, Japan, China, Southeast Asia, and India serving more than 40 countries worldwide. The network of foreign contractors promote the export of Ohio goods and services by providing small and medium-sized enterprises with qualified prospective agent and distributor reports, invaluable first-hand market research, and in-country market assistance, all at no charge to the Ohio company. Our presence throughout Ohio and in key markets worldwide equips Ohio companies with the tools needed to gain a competitive advantage in the global marketplace.
