How Free Zone can help your business grow? (Small Business Week)
Today’s business world is an ever-changing landscape. With constant technology updates and expanded means of communication, the world has become a global marketplace. A company that may have never considered doing business outside the borders of its country is finding it easier, and often necessary, to expand its reach.
Today, there are tremendous opportunities in the global economy for Aruban business to export their goods and services. Since Aruba is promoting its regional hub, it brings interesting business opportunities. Aruba has many benefits to offer for local entrepreneurs to stimulate local exports. However many companies are still lacing awareness of the possibilities and benefits of export sales, methods of distribution, sources of information, etc. and therefore experience difficulties in international trade and export.
This interactive breakout session is a platform with the aim to inform and inspire business owners on how to use the Aruba Free Zone to engage in overseas markets. Panelists will share knowledge and information. Business owners who have been successful with exports wil also discuss their experiences.
Topics include: doing export, incentives and benefits of the Aruba Free Zone, developing the hub and global market opportunities.
