New Export Webinars
One of Connecticut’s economic strengths is exporting, including our ranking of 5th-highest in the U.S. for European exports as a percent of GDP (at 2.96%).
Better yet, the potential to grow exports is increasing as opportunities in the global economy expand—but many businesses in the state still need help getting started.
Secretary of the State Denise Merrill, U.S. Rep. Joe Courtney and Commerce Department District Director Anne Evans this week announced a new series of webinars designed to close the export- information gap.
The convenient and low-cost ($25) webinars will cover several topics from letters of credit to globalizing your company’s website. You can register now for the next webinar:
- Export Documentation (February 16): Every export transaction requires documentation for both US Customs and the customs authority of the importing country. This webinar covers the basics of documentation and international Commercial Invoices.
Additional 90-minute webinars to be scheduled will include:
Global Defense Market Opportunities (Date TBD): Connecticut’s defense industry is vital to our state’s economy. With the US shrinking Defense budget, CT’s defense industries must seek new markets. This webinar will be an overview of defense industry markets worldwide and how best for Connecticut companies to enter those markets.
Basics of Export Compliance (Date TBD): Exporting aerospace and defense equipment and components often requires licenses and other export compliance paperwork. This webinar covers the basics of compliance and export licenses along with the recent changes in the regulations.
Export Opportunities for Farm and Agricultural Products (Date TBD): This webinar will give Connecticut’s small farmers and specialty Agricultural exporters the opportunity to hear what assistance is available to them from the CT Dept of Ag, the US Dept of Commerce Export Assistance Center and the CT District Export Council through a recently awarded USDA Grant.
International Standards and Certifications (Date TBD): Many countries and regions require unique certifications and standards testing for products. This webinar will address European Union, Brazilian, Chinese and Middle Eastern requirements for product importation.
Globalize your Company Website (Date TBD): Company websites are the store front for sales and information on company products. Many smaller companies are missing international opportunities because their website is not “Global Friendly”. This webinar will focus on international product descriptions, search engines, translations and the cultural aspects of international websites.
