Small business owners who are interested in exporting or growing their exports may be able to get help.
A grant to the Georgia Department of Economic Development from the Small Business Administration will provide new export services and reduced fees for some existing export services for qualified small- and medium-sized businesses, according to a news release.
By registering for the state’s trade services online at http://trade.georgia.org, Georgia companies also would receive advance notice of international trade missions and trade shows.
There is no cost to register, and registration is necessary to access these export services.
Georgia’s exports exceeded $28.9 billion in 2010, an increase of more than 20 percent from the previous year, the release stated.
