May is World Trade Month

World Trade Month: What's in Your Container?

As a big advocate of global trade, here’s my pitch for readers everywhere to get involved in World Trade Month.

Scan the U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s excellent website for a calendar of nationwide events on building global trade, and get going! Boise … Cedar Rapids … Miami … The Big Apple … Northern Kentucky or Southern California … Detroit. Trade is on the minds of everyone these days, from the Oval Office on down. Our nation’s secretary of commerce is leading a cabinet-level trade mission to Asia later this month, too.

Traditional and new industries nationwide are experiencing tremendous growth in global demand for their products and services. And, makers of goods for consumer and industrial use from around the world are knocking on your door, to build up profitable new relationships with you. Go global!
