To show support for export activity, the Wyoming Legislature appropriated $250,000 in 2013 to identify impediments and act on opportunities to improve Wyoming's access to and growth in domestic and international markets for natural gas, oil, coal, uranium, power, manufacturing, tourism and other commodities and products. This initiative will focus on participating in trade and diplomatic missions, receiving foreign consulates for familiarization tours to Wyoming, and offering an export-readiness program designed to help small Wyoming businesses make the leap from domestic to international sales. In addition, the governor’s office will conduct research to determine the extent Wyoming businesses are currently exporting and which ones are the most interested. The research will help identify which services and programs would have the most value to Wyoming companies and will help prioritize markets for future promotional efforts. Two specific industries are initially targeted: energy producers, and energy-related manufacturers.
Trade agreements with foreign nations for Wyoming energy and energy related products and continued double-digit growth in exports for all types of Wyoming-produced goods.
