Mississippi manufacturers that want to begin export operations or expand current ones can get details on resources and other help available to them at a Feb. 7 workshop in Indianola sponsored by the Delta Regional Authority.
Mississippi State University’s Franklin Furniture Institute is hosting the Getting to Know Your Export Resources workshop. It is funded by the Delta Regional Authority.
The half-day workshop begins at 8:45 a.m. and concludes at noon. There is no charge to attend this workshop, which will be at Mississippi Delta Community College’s Capps Technology Center in Indianola.
Many resources are available to help companies, regardless of size, become successful exporters. This workshop is designed to introduce businesses to these resources, the Franklin Furniture Institute said in a press statement.
The potential to grow market share overseas is huge, the Institute says, noting that nearly 95 percent of worldwide consumers live outside the United States.
“Exporting businesses take advantage of these markets and experience increased sales and profits,” the Franklin Institute says.
At the Feb. 7 seminar, a panel of experts will address export-related issues, including researching and finding the right market for products, providing trade leads from around the world, financing and insuring export transactions, and logistical assistance with packaging, labeling, documentation and shipping requirements.
