Frequently Asked Questions

Exporting Basics: Basics

How do I learn about differing customs which could affect my company, product, or way of doing business?

The best way to learn the ins and outs of doing business in another country is to travel there to learn and to have face-to-face meetings. But first, do your homework. There is a growing body of resources available on each country's history, social and political systems, protocol, and business etiquette available online. Many firms specialize in intercultural communications for business people, whether traveling or hosting foreign visitors.

If you are seriously considering a specific market, contact your local Pennsylvania Regional Export Network (REN) Partner to find out what resources are available to you. You can reach them via the contact us link on this website.
