The U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) says, “Two-thirds of the world’s purchasing power is in foreign countries. Exporting helps businesses access new markets and consumers with small and medium-sized businesses accounting for $460 billion of the known export value in 2020,The mission of the Economic Development Council (EDC) is to promote St. Johns County as an ideal business location and to encourage businesses, both large and small, to expand and relocate within St. Johns County. EDC activities and events are designed to support the success of both new and existing businesses in St. Johns County. We offer resources to businesses and support start-up ventures by providing information and connectivity to a variety of local resources.
E-commerce has skyrocketed, providing even more opportunities to export goods and services but it requires a plan. The next EDC Breakfast will focus on establishing your export plan.
Mr. Jorge Arce, Director and Senior Trade Specialist with the U.S. Commercial Service (U.S. Department of Commerce) in Jacksonville, and Mr. Viv Helwig, Owner and President of Vested Metals, will present the opportunities and challenges of exporting your goods and services.
