The key to successful exporting is having a strategic export plan. How will you find distributors? What are your financing options? In what currency should you invoice? There will be a number of factors that will influence your business strategy when entering into a foreign market, and there are resources available to help you make the best decisions on where and how to expand your business.
Dimitris Kloussiadis, an International Trade Consultant with the University of Georgia’s Small Business Development Center, will share key tactics and best practices to help you develop your business export strategy when entering a foreign market using trade data.
