What do Maine, International Trade, and Lobster have in common?
When one thinks of Maine, a few things come to mind: fresh lobster, cold winters, its beautiful coastline bordering the Atlantic Ocean. Next on the list: international trade? While it’s not currently the first thing to pop into the mind when thinking about Maine, that could soon change. Maine has a strong international trade center, aptly named the Maine International Trade Center (MITC), which was recently approved by the federal government to receive a grant of over $800K to promote exports from and attract foreign investment to Maine.
