In partnership with the Brookings Institution, a group of regional partners developed and launched the CenterState Export Plan in 2011. This plan called for the doubling of the region's exports through targeted investment in strong industry concentrations and a rethinking of how export services were provided to the community.
A key component of this plan was designating a single entity in the region to be the lead agency in providing export services and guidance to companies. The Central New York International Business Alliance was designated as this group in 2012.
