Welcome to Louisiana District Export Council

Export Counseling and Assistance

Some of Louisiana’s most experienced export executives stand ready to advise local companies on export issues and international market development. LDEC members are seasoned international traders appointed directly by the U. S. Secretary of Commerce.

The LDEC mission is to help the U. S. Commercial Service / New Orleans U. S. Export Assistance Center (USEAC) identify potential exports and act as mentors for new exporters. It acts as the primary trade outreach advisor to the USEAC. If your company is an established business you may receive export counseling from the LDEC at no charge.

In an effort to increase LDEC outreach, the LDEC has partnered with several state and local trade promotion organizations, such as the Louisiana Department of Economic Development, the World Trade Center of New Orleans, Metrovision, Le Centre International de Lafayette, the Southern U. S. Trade Association, and the University of New Orleans / Louisiana Small Business Development Center. The LDEC works with its partners to co-sponsor international trade events. In addition to local partnerships, the LDEC has also partnered with the Export-Import Bank of the United States and the U. S. Small Business Administration in developing export finance programs and credit insurance.
