At the Alabama Department of Commerce, the Office of International Trade advances the creation of quality jobs and economic growth in Alabama through international engagement.
The Office of International Trade supports Alabama’s foreign direct investment attraction efforts to heighten awareness that Alabama is a global gateway to the United States and an export platform for foreign-based investments. The office acts as a liaison for visiting foreign delegations and dignitaries and supports the Recruitment and Retention Office on export-driven projects.
We are passionate about strengthening Alabama’s international ecosystem and fostering cooperation with local, state, regional and federal trade entities to ensure a healthy climate for international business.
Trade programs are funded in part through a Cooperative Agreement with the U.S. Small Business Administration.
