International Trade Solutions
Helping Chamber Members Increase Their Exports
The Pennsylvania Chamber of Business and Industry has partnered with Stevens & Lee/Griffin International (SLGI) to underscore the importance of maintaining a strong and growing export sector within the Pennsylvania economy.
The International Trade Assistance Partnership Program (iTAPP) is designed to assist Chamber members to increase their international sales to selected markets around the world, beginning with BRAZIL, CHILE, COLOMBIA, CUBA, PERU, NIGERIA, GHANA, THE IVORY COAST and JAPAN. Other future target markets include countries in EUROPE.
Why Your Company should participate in iTAPP
- iTAPP offers the most cost-effective way for a Pennsylvania company to receive ongoing trade support in important, growing export markets. To join our program in Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Cuba, Peru, Japan, or West Africa (Nigeria, Ghana, Ivory Coast), the fixed monthly fee for Chamber members starts at $500 per country – a 20% discount over the non-Chamber member fee of $625. Reduced fees for combined assistance in several countries, annual payment savings, and customized quotes for more specific (short- or medium-term) export needs can be obtained by contacting Wilfred Muskens, email@example.com.
- The program is led by the Commonwealth's longest-serving Deputy Secretary for International Business Development, Wilfred Muskens, and the former Secretary of DCED, Sam McCullough, who was responsible for making international trade a strategic economic development priority for Pennsylvania.
- The state no longer offers free or low-cost trade support services in any of those markets.
- Participation will also help you stay abreast of changes in federal policy, law, rule and regulation which impact international trade.
