The Office of International Affairs, a division of the Mayor’s Executive Offices, was established to maintain relationships with Atlanta's international community, foreign partners, and global constituents and increase Atlanta residents' awareness of the city's global connections.
The mission of the Mayor’s Office of International Affairs (MOIA) is to maintain the city’s relationships with the international community, promote international trade opportunities to spur business growth, encourage foreign direct investment by positioning Atlanta as a great place to do business, and raise the global profile of the city of Atlanta through various initiatives, events and programs.
MOIA maintains the working relationships and partnerships with Atlanta’s international community. We work closely with the following entities:
• Consular Corps, Foreign Diplomatic Offices and Foreign Trade Offices
• Bi-national chambers of commerce
• International organizations
• Atlanta Sister Cities Commission
MOIA advises small and medium business in Atlanta on international trade strategies, provides information on upcoming trade events, hosts visiting international buyers, facilitates global business connections and informs the business community of trade opportunities in global markets.
MOIA is responsible for planning trade missions for the Office of the Mayor; these trade missions provide Atlanta businesses the opportunities to discover new markets for their products and services and meet potential partners and buyers abroad.
MOIA promotes the city of Atlanta as a premier destination to do business. We offer site selection services to foreign investors. We encourage leading global companies to establish headquarters or offices in the city, which creates jobs for Atlanta residents. We encourage countries to locate their consular offices in Atlanta because we have a strong international community and a thriving Consular Corps.
MOIA manages initiatives that raise the global profile of the city of Atlanta and attracts large-scale global events to the city, improving the quality of life for Atlanta residents by offering diverse cultural, educational and athletic programming.
We welcome you to discover Atlanta's international flavor through various initiatives, programs and events hosted by the Mayor's Office of International Affairs!
