Metropolitan Export Initiative


The Metropolitan Export Initiative (MEI) is a ground-up collaborative effort to help regional civic, business, and political leaders—with their states—create and implement customized Metropolitan Export Plans (MEPs). These localized export plans will apply market intelligence to develop targeted, integrated export-related services and strategies that help regions better connect their firms to global customers, as outlined by their individualized export goals. These MEPs will also lay out the kinds of state and federal reforms needed to support the effective implementation of such plans. Ideally, these export plans will be elements of broader regional economic development strategies.
