Governor Terry McAuliffe announced the Go Global with Coal & Energy Technology (GGCET) program, a collaboration of the Governor’s Office, the Virginia Coalfield Economic Development Authority (VCEDA) and the Virginia Economic Development Partnership (VEDP) as a result of the Governor’s 2014 Energy Plan.

GGCET program gives businesses in the Coalfield region an opportunity to export their expertise and products, helping them prosper and create jobs.

The GGCET program assists coal and energy technology companies in the Virginia coalfield region in expanding their international business.

GGCET offers a powerful combination of resources provided by VCEDA and VEDP and professional services from expert, private-sector partners. GGCET is modeled after and linked to VEDP’s award-winning Virginia Leaders in Export Trade (VALET) program.

Each year for the next two years, up to 10 qualifying companies will ramp up their global marketing efforts through this comprehensive, two-year international business acceleration program.
