555 Mission Street, #2400, San Francisco, CA 94105

As the fastest growing and largest potential market for U.S. exporters, Asia represents a tremendous and diverse commercial opportunity for U.S. companies. U.S. firms exported more than $450 billion in goods there last year, 30% of all U.S. exports worldwide! The region is also in a state of flux with several countries conducting trade negotiations with the United States and undergoing internal and external changes impacting the climate for U.S. firms. To help you position your company towards opportunities and trends in Asia are six U.S. commercial diplomats from the U.S. Commercial Service. 

From this briefing and networking event, you will:

  • Learn about the overall political and economic climate in six key Asian markets.

  • Understand market drivers in Asia and how the U.S. Commercial Service and GlobalSF can help you take advantage of opportunities unfolding throughout Asia.

  • Find out about programs to help you find the right partners, gain exposure, win government contracts, and avoid problems as you expand your business in Asia.

A prime opportunity for Bay Area firms interested in Asia.
