Canadian Export Success Webinars

Accessing and capitalizing on export expansion opportunities will be a critical strategy for businesses this year. A weakened Canadian dollar has increased the number of trade and export opportunities available for Canadian entities, and Canadian businesses must be willing to pursue these new markets to capitalize. Many small and mid-sized Canadian businesses that are new to exporting and would benefit from the expert knowledge of Canadian Manufacturers & Exporters (CME) when developing an export expansion strategy. Business owners and executives should consider participating in a CME Export Success Webinar to become aware of market opportunities and develop a strategy to leverage them.

Incoterms for Export Success

Incoterms are a set of internationally recognized rules that govern international trade, and are used to develop trade contacts. For many business professionals, this trade terminology is a major barrier preventing them from beginning export operations. It can often be confusing for new exporters to select and apply to proper trade terms to develop a fair, sustainable, and profitable trade relationship. This webinar will help business owners identify and use these trade terms more effectively.
