Technological advances, coupled with increasing consumer demands abroad, have created unprecedented opportunities for U.S. companies seeking to introduce their products and services to the international marketplace. There is also an increasing need for a well-trained, globally-focused workforce, capable of supporting American business interests abroad.
The U.S. Department of Commerce’s International Trade Administration, along with the Economic Development Administration, the Minority Business Development Agency, and a number of strategic regional partners, has developed a series of no cost, one day, international opportunities seminars. These seminars are taking place on the campuses of U.S. minority serving institutions across the country. The program includes keynote speakers, panel discussions, and valuable networking opportunities with representatives from government, industry, academia, and regional international trade associations.
