Inland Empire Export Trade Assistance Partnership (ETAP) Wraps Up
The Santa Ana District Office, in conjunction with the Inland Empire Small Business Development Center, recently participated in it’s second Export Trade Assistance Partnership (ETAP) of the year. The ETAP program is a partnership between government officials and industry experts designed to help companies increase exports of their products and services in order to strengthen the competitiveness of American industry and help meet President Obama’s National Export Initiative.
An average of twenty entrepreneurs attended each workshop, which covered topics ranging from Exploring Market Entry Strategies to International Trade Finance and International Shipping, Logistics, and Supply Chains. Attendees had the option of attending single sessions or attending the series of four workshops.
Past participants of the program, such as Starport Foods, headquartered in Fullerton, have created successful export transactions as a result of the information and contacts gained through the program.
If you have any export related questions, or would like to participate in a future ETAP series, please contact Business Development Specialist Paul Smith at (714) 560-7448 or email email@example.com.
