January 30, 2015

As we begin 2015, we remain dedicated to our core mission of accelerating global business growth for companies in the Greater Philadelphia Region.  We value the opportunity we have had in 2014 to serve as a trusted partner for many firms in the Greater Philadelphia Region, providing customized trade counseling, market information, and powerful worldwide connections to help these companies succeed in global markets. 

Last year, these companies reported over $184M in increased export sales.   Over our 13 year history these sales have reached over $1.3B, supporting some 17,000 jobs in the region. In 2014, we launched new partnerships with institutions and organizations such as Arcadia University, the Economy League of Greater Philadelphia, and the Consular Corps Association of Philadelphia.

We look forward to building on this record in 2015 by providing a quality of service and programs to meet the needs of the global business community we serve, made possible through our growing membership and partnerships.  We are very proud of these members and partners, who belong to a select group of leading businesses and organizations that look beyond our borders, whose individual success and global commitment contribute to the economic well-being of our region as a whole.

Here’s to a successful 2015!
