The commercial representation of Washington D.C. has in charge the states of Virginia, Maryland, and the Columbia District. Its main business opportunities are centred in projects of international development due to the presence of global financial institutes, such as the World Bank and the Inter-American Development Bank, among others. Likewise, opportunities in hospitality and tourism sectors stand out, which is expected to register a substantial increase in business in HORECA (Hotels, Restaurants and Catering) sectors after the pandemic. It also highlights the possibilities in technology, thanks to incentives aimed specifically at sectors like DC Tech Incentives and research hubs.
