Trade Representatives



Delawares Trade Representative Offices

Export Delaware has engaged foreign trade representatives to help Delaware businesses find partners overseas. Our trade representatives have been carefully selected to serve Delaware’s small business exporters. They have real world experience in the industries that many Delaware businesses operate, specifically bioscience, health and medical devices, environmental management and specialized manufacturing. Many of the reps are engineers, and are business owners themselves!

You can partner with one of the trade reps to explore opportunities in select foreign markets. Currently, we have representative offices in Australia, Canada, Colombia, Germany, the UK, Mexico, the Middle East, South East Asia and South Korea. The trade representatives and their teams in-country specialize in exploratory market research, where they look at your products and services and explore potential customers, distributors or partners in the foreign market that would be a good fit for your business. They vet these potential partners and perform initial outreach to facilitate matchmaking. If your business is participating in an International Business Trip with Export Delaware, the trade reps will work with you one-on-one to set up in-person meetings with the appropriate contacts. Often, the representatives participate in these meetings so they can assist with any cultural barriers and provide assistance as needed.
To connect with one of our reps, please contact Export Delaware.
