Foreign Business Development

The provincial initiative for International Business Development (IBD) encourages, promotes and financially supports Newfoundland and Labrador firms that seek to explore new markets or expand their presence in international markets.

Through a suite of programs and services, a team of international trade professionals works with clients to increase global competitiveness, minimize market expansion risks, diversify and expand export opportunities of Newfoundland and Labrador based goods and services.

The IBD team works closely with clients and industry associations to identify potential markets and align existing programs and services with the needs of clients to successfully access those markets.
