Temple University’s Small Business Development Center (SBDC) hosted the Going Global series event, “Doing Business in Ghana, Kenya, and Tanzania.” Like previous events, the Going Global series is intended to promote business and investment opportunities in emerging markets.
Nearly 50 small-business owners, interested in learning about in-country export and investment opportunities, attended the June 18 event, which was co-sponsored by Fox’s Center for International Business Education and Research (CIBER) and the Philadelphia-based U.S.-Ghana Chamber of Commerce.
The day’s speakers included: Kenneth R. Charette, Esq., of Fitzpatrick Lentz & Bubba, P.C., Attorneys at Law, who
discussed contractual considerations when engaging in cross-border business relationships; Dale Foote, of the World Trade Center of Greater Philadelphia (WTCGP), who covered export and important bank trade financing solutions; and Anna Humphrey, of the United States Trade and Development Agency (USTDA), whose talk centered on the promotion of U.S. exports and advancing economic growth in emerging markets and connecting U.S. companies with international buyers.
