Maine International Trade Center (MITC) is Maine’s leading source for international business assistance.

Created by the state legislature in 1996, our mission is to expand Maine’s economy through increased international trade in goods and services. MITC is a public-private partnership, funded through the Maine Department of Economic and Community Development, membership dues of nearly 300 businesses and organizations, and corporate sponsor contributions.

Our trade specialists are experts in their industries and regions, staying on top of the latest regulations and business trends. They have lived, studied, or worked abroad and are fluent in languages including French, Italian, Spanish, and Turkish.
