Our International Trade Fast Track service gives North Carolina companies quick entry into six international markets where we have foreign trade representatives including Canada, Mexico, Japan, Europe, China and Pacific Region, and Korea.
The goal is to accelerate the development of partners for North Carolina export-ready firms committed to finding contacts in these major markets.
Our Fast Track service builds on the success of our international partnership service with one additional step: an opportunity for representatives of North Carolina companies to travel to our international offices and personally meet with potential partners and speed their entrance into the market.
Here’s how the program works: you travel to one of our international trade offices at your expense and we schedule appointments with firms we have identified as part of our partnership matching service. These meetings can take place in our international office or at the potential business partner offices.
We set a 30-day turnaround target from receipt of all North Carolina company literature in the international representative's office to confirmation of appointments with potential partners overseas.
