Global Markets



“A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step”

                                  - Chinese proverb




Today, the importance of minority-owned businesses as a key component of U.S. international trade has never been greater. Minority businesses have a competitive advantage in global trade based on their cultural ties, language skills, and nimbleness.


The Minority Business Development Agency is committed to helping U.S. minority business enterprises expand their client base and operations to include global markets.


We provide the resources you need, including market research, metrics, development tips, business-to-business collaboration leads, and insights into the best markets for you.
