Washington District Export Council

The Washington District Export Council (DEC) is a volunteer organization drawn from Washington State businesses, governmental agencies and non-profits. The members have in-depth knowledge and experience in international business and are available as a unique source of professional advice to help other Washington firms compete and win business in the international marketplace. The Washington DEC works closely with the U.S. Department of Commerce's U.S. Commercial Service Washington office, located in Seattle, to accomplish its mission through:

  • Counseling, educating and mentoring local businesses;
  • Identifying key issues affecting U.S. and Washington industry competitiveness in the global marketplace;
  • Enhancing the efforts of the Seattle US Export Assistance Center.

Established in 1973 by the President and the Secretary of Commerce, District Export Councils are mandated to support the export expansion activities of the U.S. Department of Commerce and serve as a link between the business community and U.S. Commercial Service offices across the United States. Visit the National District Export Council website to learn more.

Please contact us if you have an interest in contributing your knowledge and special talents to the Washington DEC or, if we can provide a speaker for your event or answers to your questions on international trade, finance, logistics, marketing or documentation.
