About District Export Councils

In 1974, the Secretary of Commerce authorized and established the first District Export Councils to support the expansion of export opportunities for U.S. companies and serve as a communication link between the business community and U.S. Foreign and Commercial Service. Since then, DECs have promoted U.S. economic growth and helped to create and sustain new and higher-paying jobs in local communities, by supporting import/export opportunities.
