Member Feature – Office of International Business Development

The Department of Community and Economic Development’s mission is to encourage the shared prosperity of all Pennsylvanians by supporting good stewardship and sustainable development initiatives across our commonwealth. With a keen eye toward diversity and inclusiveness, we act as advisors and advocates, providing strategic technical assistance, training, and financial resources to help our communities and industries flourish. Pennsylvania’s Office of International Business Development (OIBD) is committed to supporting Pennsylvania companies by working with them to increase their export sales and attracting foreign companies to invest in Pennsylvania. OIBD’s Export Development program reduces the cost, risk and time traditionally associated with international market exploration. By partnering with a Regional Export Network and managing a global network of Authorized Trade Representatives, OIBD provides unrivaled services and expertise for both new-to export companies and experienced exporters seeking new markets. OIBD’s Investment staff and its network of eight investment contractors work closely with the Governor’s Action Team (GAT), local governments, and economic development agencies around the commonwealth to promote Pennsylvania as a compelling business investment location for international companies. OIBD, an agency within the Department of Community and Economic Development, is a long-time partner and supporter of the BABCPHL. We are proud to collaborate with them on both sides of the Atlantic. Special thanks to David Briel, Richard Kilner, Declan Barry and their team for their work in strengthening ties with the United Kingdom, which is Pennsylvania’s leading investor and fifth largest trading partner.
