The Global Trade Alliance of Northern Michigan is a business resource center for international trade. We connect businesses to service providers and peers to assist the launch and enhancement of global trade operations.
Enormous opportunities abound in global markets. Successful trade operations can result in business expansions and higher-wage job growth. Yet, navigating the global trade process can appear complex to new and experienced professionals alike. And while there are numerous service providers and government agencies available to help, many business owners may be unsure about where to start, or how their actions can translate into profits. To meet this need, Networks Northwest and Michigan Economic Development Corporation are launching a new resource center for international trade.
The Global Trade Alliance of Northern Michigan seeks to be the one-stop resource center for trade strategy development, access to resources and information, and peer networking in the UP and Northern Lower Michigan. Through partnerships with northern Michigan businesses, local economic development organizations, educational institutions, and others, the GTA aims to provide a single point of access for market research and entry strategies, sales and distribution channels for regional products, promotional activities including trade missions and shows, and business networking, mentoring, and education.
