The State of Utah will use STEP award funds to support export development for ESBCs through education, international trade events, and financial assistance awards. Furthermore, trade missions will be conducted to Taiwan, South Korea, Singapore, Malaysia, and Indonesia. STEP activities will focus on the various stages of export readiness for companies that have little or no export experience to companies that have experience but require assistance to expand their markets globally. These activities and resources include export education, state booths at international trade shows, and financial assistance for individual foreign market sales trips.
