MN Trade Office has Resources for Business

Friday, May 28, 2010

This week I had an opportunity to learn about the resources the MN Trade Office has for business to expand sales outside the United States.

The first indicator that your business -- large or small -- may want to consider exporting is if you are receiving inquires from outside the country. Now that nearly all businesses are on the internet anyone, anywhere can consider your products and services.

The MN Trade Office can help verify the validity of an inquiry, assist with customs, and have specialists for industries and regions available to consult with your business at no cost.

Minnesota's top export destinations are: Canada by nearly 4x's any other country, China, and Ireland.

Ed Dieter, executive director, and May Jo Stangl, Internal Education Advisor, from MN Trade Office enjoyed visiting with a half dozen business representatives at Central Lakes College in Brainerd.

Check our their website:, which contains information and links to a array of programs and information for Minnesota businesses who wish to begin or expand global markets.
