Developing an Export Strategy and Plan

This section focuses on developing a strategy to increase exports from your region. It involves two broad steps: 1) a regional data assessment; and 2) strategy development and planning. The data assessment overlaps with and could be combined with the regional data assessment for FDI.

Brookings also offers a useful ten step process (Brookings — Ten steps to delivering a successful metro export plan) for developing a metro export plan. (Note that these 10 steps are broader in scope, and encompass several sections of this toolkit.)
