Whether you are currently exporting or ready to get started, here are just a few things you should know about the ever-changing global marketplace:
- Export-oriented companies typically grow 15 percent faster, pay 15 percent higher wages, and are 12 percent more profitable than firms operating solely in the U.S. market.
- The world’s population will increase to 8.4 billion by 2030 and the strongest growth will occur in Africa, Southeast Asia, and Latin America.
- By 2030, 80 percent of the world’s purchasing power, 90 percent of economic growth, and 95 percent of consumers will live outside of U.S. borders.
With U.S. companies exporting over $2 trillion dollars’ worth of goods and services each year, it’s time for you to get in on the action and we’re here to help.
In May 2016, Enterprise Florida published a new guide to help Florida small businesses connect with global markets. The Guide provides Florida small and medium-sized businesses with key resources for exporting, including a directory of contacts, websites, best practices and other helpful information.
