Welcome to the North Texas District Export Council! The North Texas District Export Council (NTDEC) is one of the 60+ DEC which make significant contributions to America’s international competitiveness. It is a diverse group of volunteer International Trade Professionals representing regions throughout North Texas. The District Export Councils contribute leadership and international trade expertise to complement the U.S. Commercial Service’s export promotion efforts through counseling businesses on the exporting process and conducting trade education and community outreach. The primary objectives of the NTDEC are to educate the community about free trade and the benefits of free trade and include “how to” education to promote exports by companies in our area. This is facilitated through networking events and subject matter expert speaking forums. There are also legislative, educational and certification programs to participate in.
