Connect with a World of Opportunity

New Hampshire businesses, from medical device manufacturers to maple syrup producers, work with the ffice of International Commerce to find, grow, and thrive in global markets. Totaling over $7.6 billion in 2023 (its third record-setting year in a row), exports are a key driver of the state’s economy, creating jobs and meeting the needs of customers in more than 180 countries.

Strategically located in northern New England, New Hampshire has access to its deep-water port in Portsmouth and a network of interstate highways, rail and air. These logistical assets position New Hampshire to fuel global supply chains, including the aerospace and defense industries, with its top trading partners in Canada, Mexico, and beyond.

Through its unique partnerships with U.S. Department of Commerce/U.S. Commercial Service, the Export-Import Bank of the United States, the U.S. Small Business Administration and Granite State District Export Council, the award-winning Office of International Commerce provides customized assistance to companies new to exporting, as well as those expanding their reach overseas.

Programs offered by the Office of International Commerce country-specific training, as well as exhibition opportunities at international trade shows.
