The Discover Forum is the perfect opportunity for any U.S. business looking to begin exporting or to expand exports.
There’s no question that exporting is a great way to grow just about any business. It can protect your company from fluctuations in a single regional or national economy. It can expand your customer base, increasing sales and profits. It can also help create jobs in your town and boost the local economy.
We’ve shared several stories recently about just a fraction of the companies who have experienced new levels of success because of exporting.
Your company could be the next success story.
We at the International Trade Administration are proud to partner with the North Carolina District Export Council and other organizations to host the Discover Forum because exports are crucial to supporting the American economic recovery. Exports support millions of jobs, and that leads to greater prosperity here at home.
