Kean University Seminar Will Solve Mysteries of International Trade

UNION, N.J. – The Small Business Development Center of Kean University will present a workshop titled De-mystifying International Trade, on Tuesday, June 17, from 9 a.m. to noon at the school’s East Campus, Room 117, 215 North Avenue, Hillside, N.J.

Roger S. Cohen, president of Cohen International of Old Tappan, N.J., and lead international-trade consultant for the New Jersey Small Business Development Center, will conduct the seminar, which is designed to help determine if entering international markets, either as a buyer or a seller, is the right move for a company.

The workshop will focus on such topics as exporting and importing; market research and planning; methods of receiving payment, such as letters of credit; international trade resources, including financing programs; and freight forwarding and customs brokerage.

There is a fee of $15 per person or $20 for two, which includes literature and refreshments. Special arrangements for people with disabilities can be made upon request. Be sure to bring business cards and brochures for networking purposes.
