International Trade & Diplomacy

Utah is a globally-minded state. According to U.S. Census data, Utah residents speak more than 120 languages in daily business. Our strong international ties serve as a bridge from the Intermountain West to the world. The partnerships and alliances developed through diplomatic relations are crucial to promoting Utah’s business community and recruitment of foreign direct investment in the state.

International business relies on relationships fostered through public diplomacy, a highly formalized interaction governed by specific expectations and protocol. Go Utah serves as the official diplomatic arm of the state of Utah. Each year, we host more than 60 diplomatic visits from as many as 30 countries.
