Organizations and Businesses
The Philadelphia region is home to hundreds of non-profit organizations, civic and professional associations, and public agencies dedicated to connecting the region to the rest of the world and enhancing its international reputation.
Whether it's an international development agency working on behalf of women's rights in Afghanistan or teaching sustainable agricultural techniques in Africa, an association of citizens organized in support of the goals of the United Nations, a chapter of the International Visitors Council dedicated to citizen diplomacy, or a chamber of commerce focused on promoting business ties with South America, you can find it here.
From multi-national corporations to neighborhood restaurants specializing in ethnic and regional cuisine; from law and accounting firms that handle cross-border transactions every day to a busy port that ships a world of goods; from airlines serving both Asia and Europe to a pharmaceutical industry that spans the globe; and from international investors to small-to-medium businesses that import and export goods of every kind, the Greater Philadelphia business community is one of the keys to the region’s vibrant international character.
