MCILEDC, in collaboration with the International Trade Center, the Illinois Trade Office, and the Southwest Illinois Trade and Investment Council, stands ready to address barriers that discourage or limit exports and/or foreign direct investment in the region. We will direct existing and potential global exporters to the exporting assistance programs/services that are available. Some possible activities that the MCILEDC will spearhead are reverse foreign trade missions, individual and group foreign market sales missions, local seminars and events focused on increasing exports and foreign direct investment, participation in trade shows, marketing through the Illinois Foreign Trade offices, mentoring programs to assist businesses interested in starting and increasing exports, and foreign direct investment leads.
