We advocate at the local, state and federal level representing the needs of our investors and making your voice heard when it comes to policy that impacts international trade. We support legislation that can enhance the business environment for local and foreign direct investment, which enables Louisiana-based companies to explore and expand into overseas markets. Our partnerships with government and economic development agencies, institutions, and NGOs enhance our advocacy capabilities at all levels of government.
