Key Partners

In addition to Broward County government, there are a large number of private businesses, and non-profit trade associations playing major roles in the County's international trade efforts. Since the private sector fuels the growth of exports/imports and investments, the private sector is both the County's partner and client. Many large and mid-sized Broward-based firms are already exporting and importing their products and services successfully. Through their presence abroad and ability to attract buyers to the area, these firms serve as unofficial ambassadors for the quality and diversity of Broward County exports and imports and could be utilized as mentors or role models for other companies interested in exporting and importing.

Broward County's international organizations can play a critical role in promoting international trade by providing integrated and effective technical assistance to companies and municipalities desiring to transact international business. Through the assistance of these organizations, the County can be more effective in competing internationally by:

  • expanding sales of products and services by export-ready firms;
  • increasing the number of firms exporting and importing goods and services;
  • providing direct assistance to companies to assist their export/import activities; and
  • assisting in the development of a network of trade assistance organizations that can help businesses successfully complete export/import transactions.
