About the Minnesota Trade Office

The Minnesota Trade Office provides export assistance to Minnesota’s manufacturers and service providers. Programs and services focus primarily on assisting small and medium-sized companies. 

Export assistance for agriculture and food producers is provided by the Minnesota Department of Agriculture's Marketing Services Division.

The MTO also serves as  Minnesota’s Office of Protocol, ensuring that the state’s interactions with foreign delegations and dignitaries are conducted with appropriate diplomatic etiquette and cultural practices.  We are also the state’s liaison to the local diplomatic community – the Minnesota Consular Corps.
