With 95 percent of potential customers living outside of the United States, exporting goods and services makes great sense and can add to a firm’s bottom line. One significant yet underdeveloped market is Africa.
The Pierce County Economic Development Department is hosting a forum dedicated to helping companies understand the continent and enter or expand in the various national markets.
Peter Gishuru, President and CEO of the African Chamber of Commerce of the Pacific Northwest, will be the keynote speaker at this annual event.
Participants will learn the ins and outs from federal, state and local experts in the field. Hear first-hand from private companies about their experience exporting.
There is no charge to attend, but we ask that you register to join us for networking and meeting with professionals at hosted display tables.
