International trade is a vital part of economic stability and growth. International trade offers opportunities for small and large corporations. Being a player in the global market can be just as important as being a leader in a local market in today’s evolving economic landscape. The Albuquerque Hispano Chamber of Commerce is dedicated to explore such growth opportunities for our members.
Many of our members are smaller companies with few employees who may think that they are too small to go global or that their product will not sell internationally. Don’t let these myths keep you from diversifying your company in the global market. Nearly half of all US exporters have 19 employees or less. Also if your product sells well locally there is a good chance an international market can be found for it.
International trade has many benefits over staying in a local market only. New business challenges lead to improvements in products a developing effect on its practitioners. It has the ability to make companies stronger regardless of market that they compete in.
