• Why wait for U.S. economy to come back to life?
• Tap world markets through export
For many small businesses in the Central Valley, there is an unused revenue stream to consider while waiting for the U.S. economy to rebound.
Officials of the Export-Import Bank of the United States and Umpqua Bank were brought to Lodi on Nov. 19 by the Lodi Chamber of Commerce to talk with small- to medium-size wineries about exporting.
This is part one of a three-part video on that topic. In today’s video, San Francisco-based Jim Lucchesi, senior business development officer of the Export-Import Bank of the United States, talks about some of the things all small businesses need to consider as they develop their plans for exporting.
In Tuesday’s video, Anthony Oriti, senior vice president and managing director for the International Banking Division of Umqua Bank, talks about one of the biggest issues facing all exporters – getting paid.
