Do you do business internationally, or are you thinking of global expansion? Your local District Export Council, or DEC for short, is a great resource to assist companies looking to expand internationally.

The DEC contributes leadership and international trade expertise to complement the U.S. Commercial Service’s export promotion efforts through counseling businesses on the exporting process and conducting trade education and community outreach. 

Houston’s DEC may be found online at There you will find advice on a wide range of topics including marketing, technology licensing, and international legal considerations.

The U.S. Department of Commerce has created The Basic Guide to Exporting, to addresses the various issues related to doing business internationally. The guide can also be found on the Houston DEC website.
