A Basic Guide to Exporting – 2016 Edition
Today, it’s easier than ever for a company like yours, regardless of size, to sell goods and services across the globe. Small and medium-sized companies in the United States are exporting more than ever before. In 2013, more than 300,000 small and medium-sized U.S. companies exported to at least one international market—nearly 28 percent more than in 2005, the year in which the 10th Edition of this book was first published. In 2013, the value of goods and services exports was an impressive $2.28 trillion, nearly a 25 percent increase since 2010. And 2014 topped the previous year, with exports valued at $2.34 trillion.
Whether you’re new to exporting or just want to learn the latest ideas and techniques, and whether your product is a good or a service, this new 11th Edition-completely rewritten, revised, and updated-will give you the nuts-and-bolts information you need.
The Oklahoma Manufacturing Alliance’s ExporTech program helps companies to enter or expand in global markets, by assisting in the development of a customized international growth plan, vetted by experts, and by building a team of organizations that helps companies move quickly beyond planning to actual export sales. With the weak dollar and rapid growth in many emerging economies, exports sales are the fastest growing segment of the market. In addition, many U.S. firms that survived stiff global competition are now in a better position to compete in international markets. The ExporTech program leads companies through a facilitated process that prepares them for profitable growth in global markets.
