Pennsylvania’s Authorized Trade Representatives will be in Scranton to meet one-on-one with businesses on Tuesday, September 10, 2019 at the Hilton Scranton & Conference Center from 8:00 am to 2:00 pm.  The event, Bringing the World to Northeastern Pennsylvania, is organized by the Northeastern Pennsylvania Alliance in partnership with the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development Office of International Business Development.

Pennsylvania businesses are fortunate to have access to one of the largest export development programs in the country.  The state’s global network of export assistance includes 15 Authorized Trade Representatives offering consultative services in more than 51 international markets.  Trade Representatives from Australia, Canada, China, Czech Republic, Germany, India, Israel, Mexico, Netherlands, Saudi Arabia, South Korea, Southeast Asia, Taiwan, United Arab Emirates, and the United Kingdom will be in attendance.

The event is for companies in all stages of export development. The Trade Representatives’ services are provided free of charge to Pennsylvania businesses.  Services include customized foreign market intelligence, regulatory information, agents and distributor candidates, industry and government contacts, on-the-ground assistance when visiting these markets, and other export related assistance.

The event is free, but registration is required.  Bringing the World to Northeastern Pennsylvania is funded in part through the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development and sponsored by the Northeastern Pennsylvania Procurement Technical Assistance Center and InXpress of Northeastern Pennsylvania.
