SBA Kicks Off World Trade Month with Webinars to Help Businesses Go Global

WASHINGTON – This May, the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) will conduct and participate in a series of four webinars aimed at helping participants gain valuable insights on strategies for international sales success.

As part of World Trade Month, the SBA is doing all we can to help U.S. small businesses build their businesses better. Ninety-five percent of the world’s consumers and two-thirds of all purchasing power are located outside the United States. Trade can be a business strategy for survival and rebirth.

COVID-19 forced many U.S. businesses to provide goods and services from a distance, which now positions them to sell overseas. Please join SBA in celebrating World Trade Month by learning how to build back better by becoming an active participant in the $80 billion global trade economy.
