Export Programs Guide

A Business Guide to Federal Export Assistance

2009 edition

For well over a decade the Export Programs Guide has been the most comprehensive guide to federal programs which assist U.S. exporters. The completely updated 2009 edition continues this tradition, with detailed descriptions of more than 100 programs offered by 20 different federal agencies. These include:

  • Export counseling programs
  • Information on trade promotion events
  • Export financing programs
  • Sources of industry- and country-specific information and assistance
  • Information on export controls and licenses

Most entries include a brief description, a contact name and telephone number, and a Web site and e-mail address. Among the valuable information to be found in the 2009 edition are listings of regionally-focused programs such as the China Business Information Center, the Middle East and North Africa Business Information Center, and the India Business Center, each of which provides exporters with a single point of access for information on regional trade events, business counseling, and market research specific to that important region. Two appendices to the book include a list of all 107 U.S. Export Assistance Centers located throughout the country, and contact information for the 20 federal member agencies of the Trade Promotion Coordinating Committee (TPCC).
