First Steps to Accessing Global Markets
About the Event
Barriers to doing business globally are reducing by the day. Are you interested to explore the potential of global markets to grow your business? We hosted an event for business owners in March 2016 who were interested to learn about what’s involved in exporting goods and services, which organisations could help along the way and an efficient approach to get started or get serious.
Our team of expert presenters shared valuable insights on how to successfully embark on accessing global markets, this included:
- - Preparing your business to access export markets
- - Steps to exporting successfully and the support available
- - FTAs and the foundation legal frameworks to be considered
- - Finance requirements and how Efic can help you access the funding you need
