As we have reported to you A2IM has been working to obtain government support to expand our member’s export efforts. U.S. Commerce is now reaching out to offer contacts for ongoing assistance as follows:
The U.S. Commercial Service is pleased to partner with A2IM on the upcoming STEP trade mission to China, Hong Kong and Korea. The U.S. Commercial Service, the export promotion agency within the U.S. Commerce Department, helps companies to sell their products and services overseas, connect with international partners, identify key markets and navigate international intellectual property rights violations. We have local U.S. Export Assistance Centers in every major city within the U.S., with trade specialists eager to help music industry representatives increase their international sales. We would love to meet with you to learn more about how we can help your business in the international marketplace.
