Pasco EDC Answers President’s Call to Help Small Businesses Increase Exports

April 23, 2012

Pasco Economic Development Council, Inc is helping local businesses to export their goods overseas.  On Friday, April 27th from 8:30am – 10:00am, Pasco EDC, in conjunction with Career Central, will be hosting an Exporting Forum. President Obama recently told workers at the Port of Tampa that his administration was aiming to increase exports for small businesses. Pasco EDC wants to help connect them with the right information they need to answer the President’s call to action. At Pasco EDC’s Exporting Forum, Rachel Kreissl from the Department of Commerce/Tampa Bay Export Assistance Center will be speaking about opportunities for businesses to start selling overseas and just how easy it is to increase profits. Ken Nadler from SCORE will talk about ways to set up transactions and how to receive foreign payments. Finally, Jim Pyburn, Director of Trade Development/Latin America for the Tampa Port Authority, will discuss the Port of Tampa, infrastructure improvements, and the President’s recent visit to speak about trade with Latin America. The Pasco EDC Exporting Forum will be held at the SunTrust building in New Port Richey (6128 US Hwy 19). There is a $5 charge for a light breakfast.
