State International Development Organizations Inc.

State International Development Organizations Inc., (SIDO) is the only national organization focused exclusively on state international trade development. SIDO helps state international trade agencies better serve American exporters by sharing innovative ideas and resources, developing the skills of state trade professionals, advocating the interests of states in trade promotion, and facilitating multi-state collaboration. State international trade agencies are widely recognized as leaders in innovative, performance-based trade development assistance and export promotion. Physically located in their respective states, international trade staff communicate regularly with constituents, business leaders and international contacts. State international staff work directly with small to medium-sized exporters, providing trusted guidance as they strengthen our economy through exporting. The resources available for international trade promotion and the strategies used to promote these programs vary significantly from state to state. SIDO provides a forum for practitioners to learn from each other and directly impact our local and national economies. Through a close partnership with The Council of State Governments (CSG), SIDO members contribute specialized expertise, information and resources to support the overall goal of promoting state international trade programs. SIDO offers a mechanism by which members can access helpful directories, seek out best practices from other state agencies, expand their international contacts and resources, and utilize a wide array of additional products and services. SIDO also provides a vital forum for bringing issues to a broader, collective audience.
