Customized Trade & Export Webinars for Small Business

Trading in international markets, especially those recently opened by free trade agreements, offers small and mid-sized enterprises (SMEs) a significant opportunity for growth. In fact, according to recent data, "in 2012, U.S. merchandise exports to countries with which the United States has a free trade agreement (FTA) outpaced other markets nearly two to one."

Similarly, the U.S. recently signed agreements with Colombia, Korea, and Panama, bringing the total number of FTA countries to twenty. This provides SMEs even greater access to growing economies seeking quality U.S. products and services. Aiding these small businesses, the U.S. Department of Commerce and other government agencies provide resources and services to facilitate market entry.
