As part of the Georgia Reaching Out Worldwide (G.R.O.W.) program, the Georgia Department of Economic Development (GDEcD) will offer exhibit space at selected targeted trade shows throughout the world to eligible small business concerns (ESBCs) at substantially reduced rates. GDEcD will also lead a number of trade missions of Georgia companies to a variety of countries, assisting approximately 70 ESBCs with these outbound foreign trade activities, and anticipating $2,245,000 in total projected sales. GDEcD will also bring international buyers, manufacturers, and country-specific trade experts for one-on-one meetings with ESBCs as part of the “G.R.O.W. Regional Initiative.”  GDEcD anticipates total projected sales of $200,000 arising from these ESBC activities.
