The month of April is just full of good things.
Baseball kicks off, we crown NCAA basketball champions, the snow
melts, flowers bloom, and we prepare for what may be the single best
export-promotion event in the country.
That's right, in between watching ball games and watering
your garden, you should take some time to register for the first event in our DISCOVER GLOBAL MARKETS Business Forum Series.
Series is perfect for U.S. businesses looking to identify and win new business
in the international marketplace. These events feature 1-on-1 counseling with U.S.
Commercial Diplomats, dynamic panel discussions, and countless networking
opportunities with like-minded U.S. businesses and leading trade officials.
The first event in the 2014 series takes place in San Antonio on May 1-2, and the focus is on taking advantage of opportunities in Africa, the Middle East, and India —
some of the most promising export markets in the world:
- Government support through the Doing
Business in Africa Campaign, Trade Africa, and Power Africa make it easier
to enter growing markets on the continent.
- Commerce Secretary Pritzker's recent business
development mission to the Middle East helped open even more trade avenues
into the region.
- Exports to India have nearly tripled since 2005,
with continued growth expected.
I hope you'll be able to join us in San Antonio to take
advantage of this unprecedented opportunity to learn more about expanding your
business' overseas presence. Keep informed about upcoming events within the DISCOVER Series by following @DiscoverForums on Twitter.
