Description:

The State of Kansas will use STEP funding for New-to-Export Live and Broadcast Training through a live web broadcast training event focused on increasing the visibility and viability of exporting.  Consultant and client training will be a priority. Kansas will promote ExporTech, an effective program that will provide measureable sales impact, attract new companies, build long-term relationships and enhance partnership-building among state organizations.  The Kansas Department of Agriculture will lead four trade missions and host one trade show pavilion for Year Two of STEP with expected outcome of $300,000. Kansas’ Market Access Program (MAP) will allow Kansas farmers, ranchers and agribusinesses to solidify their international relationships and marketing plans as they leverage private and public funding to increase Kansas agricultural exports (expected outcome of $500,000).
