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 Wednesday, March 12, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Elizabeth Public Library, located at 11 South Broad Street in 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.

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.

This workshop is co-sponsored by the Elizabeth Public Library. Special arrangements for people with disabilities can be made upon request. Be sure to bring business cards and brochures for networking purposes. For further information or to register, please contact Mira Kostak at 908-737-4220.
