World markets await.

With 95% of the world’s consumers and 80% of global purchasing power outside the U.S., tapping into international markets can help businesses of all sizes to thrive. And strong local companies contribute to a strong regional economy.

GREATER MSP is dedicated to growing the economy of the 15-county Minneapolis Saint Paul region by implementing the MSP Trade & Investment Plan to expand exports and attract investment from new geographies. Nearly 120,000 jobs in the region depend on it.

Working with our partners, we help companies in the metro region to launch or expand sales into overseas markets. We provide export counseling, and facilitate relationships with other service providers, industry groups and overseas organizations. As part of the export initiative, tools have been created that will help you take the next steps into global markets.
