The State of New Mexico will use STEP award funds to support ESBCS to begin exporting or expand into new export markets.  New Mexico will focus on supporting women-owned, veteran-owned, minority-owned, and rural ESBCs. Activities will include participation in foreign trade shows in Portugal, China, Germany, Mexico, France, the United Kingdom, and Japan. STEP funds will also be available for U.S. Department of Commerce services, such as Gold Key service, translation, and matchmaking services. New Mexico will also use STEP funds to set up an export training program with customized counseling for 20 ESBCs.
