Almost 30% of the Northern Kentucky Chamber’s membership trades worldwide or is globally connected.  Global members of the Chamber include manufacturers, service providers, distributors, freight forwarders, engineering/construction firms and technology/e-commerce companies.  The international Trade programs and services of the Northern Kentucky Chamber have been designed to help business owners and entrepreneurs identify new market opportunities, build global networks and deal with international trade matters.

NKITA aims to enhance economic opportunities for those business members that are involved and/or want to be involved in international trade.  The program connects members with global businesses and networking opportunities through programs, trade education seminars, special events and the planning of several international trade visits. Through meetings and regularly scheduled programs, NKITA can inform and educate our members as to the procedures and benefits of world trade.  In addition, NKITA’s Issues and Resources Committee addresses community issues such as immigration and support to Trade Promotion Authority and Free Trade Agreements.  NKITA is also affiliated with the Kentucky Cabinet for Economic Development, International Trade Division and the Cincinnati U.S. Commercial Service, U.S. Department of Commerce.
