Trade Missions & Programs 

The Office of Trade and Investment (OTI) is eager to help Illinois’ small and medium-sized businesses begin to export or grow their market. OTI’s export assistance programs, supported by state and federal funding, helps provide small and medium-sized businesses with financial and technical assistance, including the opportunity to participate in Group Trade Missions and Individual Foreign Market Sales Missions. These programs help Illinois businesses engage with foreign buyers, agents, distributors and/or joint-venture partners.
