FREE FOREIGN TRADE SEMINAR OFFERED MAY 15
Farmers and agribusiness owners interested in global trade have the opportunity to learn techniques during a free seminar May 15 at the Birmingham Marriott.
Agriculture Commissioner John McMillan said he thinks the “Trading with the World - Exporting Alabama Agriculture” seminar will be beneficial to farmers who want to expand their customer base.
“Our goal is to help Alabama farmers and agribusinesses learn the process of international trade and expand their opportunities in export sales,” McMillan said. "Alabama agricultural exports now total $1 billion, and we have the potential to double that in the next 10 years."
The Southern United States Trade Association is a co-sponsor of the conference and will provide expert advice on how to lessen the risks of international marketing.
Early registration is encouraged, and all applications must be received by April 30. To register, visit ALExportConference.com. Attendance is limited to 125
