"This blog is not for lawyers or trade professionals. It is not meant to be a site to get the latest trade law summaries. Others do that. This blog is for exporters and business executives who want to hear about business issues that affect their growth. Practical information they can use to expand their business, increase profit and minimize risk. I like to help companies explore opportunities. The smallest company can sell overseas, and large companies can have smart international growth. Think outside of the box, but make sure someone has got your back. It is like 'trust but verify'!"
