Borek: Export assistance available to business
Export markets can be very important to manufacturers and other businesses. Exporting products and services help increase sales and profits, reduce dependence on domestic markets and help stabilize seasonal fluctuations.
A variety of services are available to assist businesses with exporting. The programs have been established to help companies get started in exporting or to expand sales into new global markets.
The U.S. Department of Commerce Small Business Administration helps companies begin exporting with an online tool: “6 Steps to Begin Exporting” (www.export.gov/begin). The process starts with a self-assessment to help companies determine their readiness to succeed in international trade. The assessment is followed by tutorials on training and counseling programs; creating an export business plan; conducting market research; finding foreign buyers; and financing, insuring and mitigating risk of export operations. After completing the assessment, companies are referred to resources specific to their individual needs.
