EXPORT AWARENESS WORKSHOPS
The South Dakota International Trade Center, the Small Business Administration, the Governors Office of Economic Development, U.S. Commercial Service, the South Dakota Small Business Development Centers, the Great Plains International Trade Association, and South Dakota Department of Agriculture have teamed together to provide a statewide series of workshops to raise awareness and to connect South Dakota companies to the resources available to begin exporting their products. These workshops are 45-60 minutes in length and targeted towards companies that have never exported or have very limited experience with exporting.
TOP CONCERNS ABOUT EXPORTING
1. Fear of not getting paid once the product has been shipped
2. Unfamiliarity with the buyer’s language
3. Perceived loss of control when dealing with a foreign buyer
4. Production is already at full capacity
5. Decision makers are unsure of where to start.
