ThinkGlobal and SIDO have released the 2018 edition of the USA Trade Guide, an international resource for export and investment promotion. This magazine-style guide, in print and online, is an informational resource and tool for U.S. exporters nationwide and foreign direct investors. The purpose of the guide is to provide U.S. companies and foreign investors with expert advice and answers to frequently asked questions about exporting and investment. It also will include information about key contacts, web sites and other resources.
The State Trade Directory provides each state with their own web-page to highlight information about their trade program, staff, contact information, etc. This webinar will teach you how to log onto your state's page, upload and manage content.
SIDO Report 2018: “Defining Success: Meaningful Metrics to Evaluate U.S. State International Trade Programs”
How do states measure the many activities and accomplishments of trade development programs? The answer is not as easy as a simple cost-benefit analysis. For years, federal and state leaders have used a variety of indicators, including number of companies counseled, estimated export sales, jobs supported, and customer satisfaction surveys. However, metrics have changed frequently and there has been minimal analysis on how to best measure state international trade programs.
