International Trade and Investment
California is the 5th largest economy in the world behind only the U.S., China, Japan, and Germany and the Golden State’s $2.6 trillion economy accounts for 1/7 of the entire U.S. economy.
Businesses in California growing their international presence or those seeking to access connections abroad can leverage opportunities through the Governor’s trade agreements to export/import goods and services and/or meet potential foreign investors.
The Governor’s Office of Business and Economic Development (GO-Biz) was created by Governor Edmund G. Brown Jr. to serve as the State of California's leader for job growth and economic development efforts. GO-Biz partnered with the State's Information Technology Leadership Academy 22 to create the California Business Portal.
