WEBINAR: Take Your Business Global with Help from SBA – July 2020
Wednesday, July 29, 2020
2:00 PM - 3:00 PM EST
Did you know U.S. trade with Canada and Mexico supports 12 million American jobs?
U.S. trade with our North American neighbors has quadrupled in the past 25 years. In fact, 49 U.S. states count Canada and/or Mexico as one of their top three merchandise export markets.
The new United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) has modernized NAFTA into a 21st century, high-standard trade agreement with updated provisions for digital trade, intellectual property, financial services, and agriculture trade. It supports mutually beneficial trade leading to freer markets, fairer trade, and robust economic growth in North America.
Please join the Small Business Administration (SBA) as we delve into what the USMCA means to American small businesses.
In this session you will:
- Learn how the U.S. Mexico Canada Agreement (USMCA) commitments and tools can assist small businesses to increase sales to our North American neighbors and our top trading partners.
- Hear from SBA officials about programs and services that can help small businesses take advantage of these opportunities.
- Join SBA's Office of International Trade's new Associate Administrator Lorretta Greene for an interview with HMA Fire, a Wisconsin small business sharing their export success story in the North America market.
This is a can’t miss opportunity to tap into SBA’s export programs and services and go global.
Sales opportunities in new markets are waiting for you!

More time allotted for any small business or organization that has not taken advantage of the PPP Loan Program.
