Air Service & International Trade

Forward Sioux Falls helped establish the International Trade Center at the Sioux Falls Regional Airport, the state´s only port of entry. We will continue to promote use of the Port of Entry by Sioux Falls and South Dakota businesses. In this world economy, it is important that we work to assist South Dakota companies in marketing their products globally.

We partner with the South Dakota Small Business Development Center, the Governor´s Office of Economic Development (GOED) and the U.S. Small Business Administration to inform, educate and support regional businesses in exporting their products internationally.
