Office of Export Promotion


E Star Logo The Office of Export Promotion works with New Jersey’s small and mid-sized companies interested in expanding their products and services through export. Companies interested in global business activity can tap into a number of resources available through NJBAC’s Export Promotion unit.

Most recently, the Office of Export Promotion received the President’s E Star Award for Export Service during an award ceremony at the U.S. Department of Commerce headquarters in Washington, D.C. The E and E Star Awards are the Nation’s highest honor for export excellence. Created in 1961 through an Executive through an Executive Order by President John F. Kennedy, the awards afford suitable recognition to persons, firms, or organizations that contribute significantly in the effort to increase U.S. exports.
