Dear Friends and Partners -

mastering global expansions and complex market entries.

There was a time, not so long ago, when U.S. companies dominated the exclusive club of global companies. In less than one generation, the decline in trade barriers and the free flow of goods, service, and capital, combined with technological changes in communication, information processing and transportation have made it possible for small and medium size companies, from around the world to join the club and successfully compete globally, side-by side with global giants.

Globalization has facilitated a rapid economic growth, helping raise the world’s GDP from $50 trillion in 2000 to $80 trillion in 2018, and presenting a wealth of opportunities by creating demands for more goods and services, new technologies and innovations, and opening the door to new markets and customers.

Today, there is no such thing as a domestic market anymore. Businesses, consumers and governments are now accustomed to buying globally and looking for the best products and services worldwide. Foreign direct investments are at a record high, global sourcing is growing, and competition is heated in the pursuit of customers in emerging economies.
