The State of California will use STEP award funds to support California’s leading export sectors: information technologies, food and agricultural products, transportation equipment, miscellaneous manufactures (consumer products), and medical and scientific equipment. ESBCs will have the opportunity to participate in twelve foreign trade show exhibitions in China, Spain, Australia, Mexico, the United Arab Emirates, Vietnam, and Japan. California will also use STEP funds to support planned trade missions to South Korea, Vietnam/Philippines, China, and the larger South-East Asian region. ESBCs can also request funding for individualized export promotion activities.
