Kean University Seminar Will Solve Mysteries of International Trade

UNION, N.J. – The Small Business Development Center of Kean University will present a free workshop titled Demystifying International Trade, on Thursday, March 18, from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at Elizabeth Public Library, 11 S. Broad Street, Elizabeth, 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.
