The Dorchester County Economic Development Office hosted an Export Forum held at the Eastern Shore Innovation Center located in the Dorchester Regional Technology Park. The Maryland Department of Commerce planned the forum and invited businesses interested in exporting and expanding their reach overseas.
Many supporting agencies presented including the United States Export Assistance Center; Maryland Department of Commerce; Maryland Department of Agriculture; Small Business Administration Export Finance; and the District Export Council.
Topics included federal and state resources to help Maryland companies advance their export sales. Export grant funds, free and low-cost match making services, and trade show opportunities were presented. In addition, the Export Forum focused on programs for agricultural and food products.
