District Export Council

Any business that manufactures a product will likely have a need to export that product to its customers.  However, the export process offers a multitude of challenges that, if handled incorrectly, could lead to setbacks to your timeline as well as your budget.  In order to meet these challenges, District Export Councils (DEC) were formed. 

District Export Councils contribute 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.

The West Texas District Export Council (WTDEC) is one of four District Export Councils in Texas. It is under a nationwide network of DECs that make a significant contribution to America’s international competitiveness.  The WTDEC is a diverse group of volunteer international trade professionals who meet for strategic sessions to address international issues and awareness.  Among the members, you will find exporters of manufactured products and services, providers of export support services (accounting, finance, legal, transportation, etc.), academia and leaders of non-profit organizations of state and local government.  A significant number of the members are from the private sector and their knowledge of international business provides a source of professional advice to exporters and to the entire international trade community in Texas, one of the nation’s leading exporting states.

The West Texas District Export Council assists companies in a variety of ways, including:
• Market Research
• Business Planning
• International Law
• Contracts
• Payments
• Gold Key Service
• Working Capital Options
• Project Financing Options
• Training
• Seminars and Workshops
