The Tennessee Trade Program, or TNTrade, is intended to provide small and diverse businesses with the tools necessary to enter new and expand existing export markets. This initiative will continue to engage and empower companies seeking to increase exports with (1) the launch of TNTrade Academy; (2) a new focus on the role that international offices administer on behalf of Tennessee; (3) an expansion of international and domestic public relations strategy and marketing efforts around Tennessee’s exports and its potential; and (4) creating closer ties with Tennessee colleges and universities to leverage common international goals.
