Are you a Florida company interested in international business opportunities? More than 90% of the world’s market exists outside the United States.
Merchandise trade valued at $143 billion flowed through Florida’s airports and seaports in 2016, making the state one of the world’s leaders in international trade. According to the U.S. Department of Commerce, businesses that export grow 15% faster, pay 15% higher wages and are 12% more profitable. Moreover, companies that export are also better able to withstand economic downturns in the domestic market.
