How much international business is your company doing?  Are you using all of the international resources Houston has to offer?

Finding the tools you need to boost your international business opportunities is as simple as knowing where to look.

The Greater Houston Partnership, the District Export Council, the Houston International Protocol Alliance and the various international chambers of commerce all have programs and work to assist business owners looking to do business internationally.  Many of the 90 consulates also have local trade offices focused on facilitating business between the U.S. and their home country. For example, the UK Trade & Investment office and the Brazil Export & Investment Promotion Agency both have a large presence in Houston’s international business community.

Attending events such as the GHP’s World Trade Soiree, or seminars and presentations from the World Affairs Council of Houston is a good way to network with international business leaders.

With our resources, it is no surprise that, to quote Dr. Steven Kleinberg, “Houston is where the future of the world is happening today.”
