Is Exporting Right for My Company?

Exporting seems really difficult. Is this true?

We understand, it seems overwhelming when thinking about exporting to other countries. WUSATA's programs are designed to help you learn about foreign markets with Export Education, then start meeting potential buyers with our sponsored inbound missions, and eventually attend outbound missions overseas. We are here to help in every step of the process, and can help take the stress out of taking your first steps towards meeting exporting goals.

Traveling overseas seems scary since I do not know the language or customs of other countries. Will I be doing this alone?

Absolutely not! WUSATA has decades of experience traveling to other countries and will be happy to share this experience with you. WUSATA also attends many events overseas, so we will be there to help you in any way we can. There will also be numerous participants attending events from your area that we can introduce you to.
