COVID-19 and Global Markets: Free Webinars from Export Delaware
WILMINGTON, Del. – Global supply chains will be forever changed as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. No company or organization will have one sole source of supply in any one country again. Sourcing is already shifting away from China and toward other markets. This offers a bright side for Delaware businesses, as exports could ultimately increase.
Local businesses can learn more about how international markets and exports will be affected by this pandemic from a new webinar series presented by Export Delaware: “Global Conversations….With Our Export Delaware Family Worldwide”.
“For business professionals, now is the time to be proactive and assess which countries and markets are best for you to focus on,” said Beth Pomper, director of Export Delaware, a division of the Delaware Department of State. “While we are all working from home, it is important to maintain relationships with those clients you have or new ones you met on business trips, and learn what you can do proactively now to relaunch when borders open.”
The Export Delaware foreign trade office family will be featured in each session, providing details of their current market situation and opportunities in Australia, New Zealand, Ireland, the UK, South America, Canada, South Korea and Southeast Asia.
The sessions will be interactive, with an opportunity to ask questions live from home. Exporters already doing business in the region and businesses just curious to learn more are encouraged to join. Registration is complimentary.
