Trade Mission Boosts Marketing to Brazil, Colombia
Ohio Development Services Agency
Businesses looking to market their products and services in Brazil and Colombia can take advantage of a trade mission opportunity next year.
The Great Lakes St. Lawrence Governors & Premiers, in partnership with the Small Business Development Center Export Assistance Network and the Ohio Development Services Agency, invite you to take part in the trade mission in March 2019.
Brazil is the eighth-largest economy in the world and has a natural affinity for the United States and a high regard for U.S. products, brands and technology.
The U.S.-Colombia Free Trade Agreement eliminated import tariffs on 80 percent of U.S. exports of consumer and industrial products to Colombia. Colombia’s infrastructure projects will generate demand for construction equipment for public roads and airports, transportation equipment, security and defense items and services, and mass transit systems.
Space is limited for the trade mission. Registration deadline is Jan. 22, 2019.
For more information, contact Kathy Marshalek, director for the Ohio Small Business Development Center, Export Assistance Network, at (937) 531-6612 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
