This seminar will focus on the “how-to” of exporting goods and services internationally. The event will also feature Ellison Hong from the US-China Economic Development and Trade Council to discuss trade initiatives between the U.S. and China. Information and resources available for export assistance will also be discussed as well as showcasing the new IMAGE Grant (Ohio International Market Access Grant for Exporters).

The LEDC will also be available to discuss the newly activated Foreign Trade Zone #270 located at The Point industrial park as well partnership incentives for companies looking into importing and/or exporting from Southern Ohio.
