(Sept. 12, 2011) — The City of San Bernardino, Economic Development Agency, Office of Business Development will host a workshop focusing on international opportunities for small businesses from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m., Thursday, Sept. 15.

The workshop will be taught by Al Elgendy, who has worked as an international business consultant for the U.S. Department of Commerce, the Small Business Administration and several Small Business Development Centers.
The seminar will discuss ways local companies can sell their products in the global marketplace, according to Lori Tillery, economic development manager.
“Most companies are unaware of the billions of dollars that are available in international trade opportunities,” Tillery said. “The Internet has made international communication and trade much easier and faster.
