96% of the world’s customers live outside of the United States. Business owners seeking their next customer must look to global markets for growth and expansion. This session will explore the Obama Administration’s customer service driven strategy that streamlines federal resources; improves available data on specific export opportunities, and works closely with financing organizations to increase U.S. exports. Panelists will discuss programs and services that business owners can access locally and around the globe.
