How do you maximise your opportunities in the largest market in the world?

To help local businesses understand the opportunities, risks and what’s involved in developing business in the USA, Suffolk Chamber International has teamed up with leading experts to provide very valuable insights into the exciting world of exporting to the USA.

The World Bank ranks the USA 7th in its Ease of Doing Business assessment. Add to that the common language, positive relationships, the largest economy and largest market in the world and it is easy to see why the USA is the UK’s largest export market.

However, none of that means it is easy to succeed over the pond or that it doesn’t have its own complexities. Each state has its own procedures and legislation, not to mention huge cultural and sector differences. So join us at this event to find out about the opportunities in the market and learn how best
to ‘Do Business in the USA.’
