RoundTable Defense has just completed the Global Defense Program (GDP) run by the Virginia Economic Development Partnership (VEDP), which assists firmly established domestic companies across the Commonwealth that are committed to international exporting as a growth strategy. We are grateful to Ms. Theodora von Hohenstaufen Noll for all the guidance, advice and assistance throughout the year. We also would like to recognize the State of Virginia for funding such a program to assist up an coming business with growth/expansion resources into international markets.
Eligible defense-related companies receive assistance with strategy, export compliance, matchmaking, translation, and more. Also, participation in on-continent vendor days with U.S. Combatant Commands as well as training sessions held throughout Virginia to help prepare your company to go global. Defense-related companies also receive market research services such as identifying potential distributors and due diligence reports. For more information, contact your local international trade expert.
Virginia exports more than $34 billion in goods and services each year, supporting more than 232,000 jobs and generating $2 billion in tax revenue.
