Export Assistance Program

Whether you’re planning your first export sale or expanding into additional markets, the City of Beaverton's Economic Development Division is here to assist your business identify the right resources for all your export needs.

E-commerce, trade agreements, and more trade finance options have significantly increased access to markets around the world making it easier and less risky for U.S firms to export. Every year, the Export-Import Bank, U.S. Commercial Service and the Small Business Administration help thousands of companies export billions of dollars of goods and services.

The City of Beaverton and Business Oregon are currently the only two Export-Import Bank (Ex-Im) City/State Marketing Partners located in Oregon. In addition to our partnership with Ex-Im Bank, we also have relationships with a variety of export professionals around the region, and our goal is to offer practical advice on next steps when it comes to exporting.

This site offers a variety of export resources including: contacts, export information, and websites. We will also add additional tools to this list as they become available.
