Kentucky's International Representative Offices

Kentucky is a primary destination for foreign investment, calling home to more than 400 international companies representing 33 countries. Exports to foreign countries are also big, contributing more than $27.7 billion to the state’s economy in 2014. The Cabinet for Economic Development operates two international offices to assist in promoting direct investment to the state and to increase trade between Kentucky companies and international markets. To learn more about how our international offices can assist you, visit the Web sites listed below or contact them directly at either location.
