This course provides a sound introduction to the role of export and import and gives delegates an overall picture of how the many elements of international trade fit together

Delegates will explore the wider commercial implications of international trade for their company and learn about the global trade environment and many of the practicalities and terminology used.

This course gives newcomers to international trade a clear insight into basic procedures, good practice and the essential terms they are likely to meet. This is also an ideal course for people who are not directly involved in international trade but work with those who are. This is “International Trade for Non-Export/Import Managers”.
