Only in New York…

That’s the slogan so commonly used to describe our one-of-a-kind city. We New Yorkers covet all the wonderful things about our town that make it what it is, from our accents to our sports.

We also love the quality goods and services that come from our entrepreneurs, thought leaders, and businesspeople. But this week, during World Trade Week NYC, we want to make sure that these products aren’t found only in New York.

This week, all of us at the U.S. Commercial Service in New York and throughout the region are excited to partner with the state, the city, local companies, and many business organizations to help get more of our businesses competing in the global marketplace.

Our network of more than 40 organizations throughout the region will host a number of events, workshops, panels, and information sessions to connect local businesses with the best opportunities to compete overseas and help share the best practices for finding success in global markets.

From understanding copyright strategies, to working with startups in Africa, to competing in Mexico, to evaluating free trade agreements, the events going on this week and throughout the month will provide a comprehensive learning experience for any business that wants to expand its exports.

Of course it’s fitting that World Trade Week NYC coincides with Small Business Week, and we’ll be showing New York’s small businesses how important it is to compete in the global marketplace.

World Trade Week is officially only one week here in NYC, but this city is a global city 52 weeks a year! Our network of trade specialists downtown, in Harlem, on Long Island and throughout the region are here to help any company that’s ready to get started exporting. We hope we’ll see many of you at events throughout the week, and we hope to see many of your businesses finding more success overseas.

Happy World Trade Week!

  1. Everyone in the world knows New York. I think this is a great city to promote. If we can get NYC to share the glory as the gateway city, we can all benefit with more business.
