That’s a Wrap! Export Controls Training Event Sells Out in Portsmouth

Friday, April 28th, 2017

The OIC/US Commercial Service team, our Provident Bank sponsor and some of the NH businesses* taking part in the Bureau of Industry and Security’s export controls training in Portsmouth.

Our team at the Office of International Commerce (joined by our partners at US Commercial Service) wrapped up an intensive three day training that drew more than 100 attendees – not only 23 from New Hampshire, but from as far away as Vancouver, Canada.

The Bureau of Industry and Security’s export controls training made its only stop in the northeast this year in Portsmouth and it was a sellout.

This is gratifying for several reasons.

If you make a product here in New Hampshire that you sell to customers around the country, it is more than likely there is untapped potential in markets overseas. Exporting is a great way to diversify (and increase!) your bottom line.

But there are a lot of ins and outs to shipping  your products to international customers and this kind of training helps you to navigate the process.

Don’t miss another export training event! Sign up today for our newsletter.

OIC and our many partners are dedicated to helping New Hampshire companies find success around the globe, no matter how big or how small they are. To see over 20 Granite State companies represented at this important training event shows us that they are finding success beyond the border and are committed to growing those markets.

Friday, April 21st, 2017

radioNow that we have seen the last of the snow (inasmuch as we can say that for New Hampshire in April!), there are those who can’t wait to sink their hands into the dirt and get going on their garden.

New Hampshire Business Matters airs at 3:05 pm every third Wednesday on WTPL-FM, 107.7

Agriculture, at $1.5 billion, is a big contributor to our economy and according to the state Department of Agriculture, Markets and Food, the number of New Hampshire farms increase 5 percent according to the 2012 Agricultural Census, at a time when farms were decreasing nationwide by 4 percent.

On our monthly radio show this week, Gail McWilliam Jellie of the Department of Agriculture, Markets and Food, was our guest this week and talked about what’s happening in this industry.
