ITRC Plans Intro to Exporting Seminar

In cooperation with the Greater Portsmouth Chamber of Commerce, the New Hampshire International Trade Resource Center (ITRC) will hold a seminar, “Introduction to Exporting,” on Tuesday, March 22 from 3-5pm at the Roundabout Diner, 580 US Highway RT 1 Bypass in Portsmouth.

export-classic“Since 95% of the world’s consumers live outside of the United States, developing an international business plan can be key to a company’s success,” New Hampshire International Trade Resource Center Director Dawn Wivell said. “Currently more than 2,200 New Hampshire companies export and the majority of them are small or medium-sized businesses. In 2010 alone, the Granite State exported $4.4 billion in goods and services, surpassing its previous all-time record. New Hampshire is number one among the states in rate of export growth, and we’re well above the national rate of 21.31%. That’s why this is an excellent time for businesses in New Hampshire to make exporting a part of their business plan.”

The seminar will cover researching international markets, developing an international business plan, international pricing, taxes and tariffs, logistics, financing and much more.

The event, which is sponsored by ITRC, the Greater Portsmouth Chamber of Commerce, People’s United Bank and the U.S. Commercial Service, is free to Chamber members and $10 for non-members. For more information or to register, please email info@portsmouthchamber.org.

Administered by the New Hampshire Division of Economic Development’s Office of International Commerce, the ITRC plans, develops and administers programs for international trade promotion and foreign market development.  For more information about the ITRC, call (603) 271-8444, or visit their website at www.exportnh.org
