Selling to foreign markets? How the U.S. Commercial Service and the International Trade Administration can help you!
Did you know that the US. Commercial Service (CS) office is the trade promotion arm of the U.S. Department of Commerce's International Trade Administration? Did you know that they can help small and medium-sized businesses increase international sales through their services? Did you know that the CS office is part of the U.S. Foreign Service and its commercial officers are diplomats?
If you answered 'no' to these questions, you need to attend the International Concierge Committee's roundtable event featuring Jessica Gordon, director of the U.S. Commercial Service DFW Office. Jessica will discuss what her office does, how its resources can help businesses, and how the CS office protects strategic U.S. commercial and economic interests around the world.
