Governors State University (GSU) recently announced its new Illinois International Trade Center and additional educational opportunities for regional businesses. The programs are designed to help firms that are already involved in exporting to expand their markets and introduce additional Illinois products and services to overseas markets.

The Illinois International Trade Center will provide targeted, high-impact services for export-ready companies, including free one-on-one consulting, market research, technical assistance in trading and logistics, and seminars. The International Trade Center is part of a grant from the U.S. Small Business Administration and the Illinois Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity to expand the existing Illinois Small Business Development Center services at CenterPoint at Governors State University.
