Stories told of exporting from Alaska

As we celebrate May as World Trade Month, we recognize that more than 300 Alaskan businesses export, contributing $5.2 billion in sales.

Ninety-six percent of consumers reside outside the United States. Anchorage is located midway between Asia and Europe. Have you thought there may be additional market opportunities elsewhere in the world for your goods or services?

Join us at “Make it Monday” to learn how local businesses grow their sales with trade in tourism, e-commerce, and brick-and-mortar sales channels.
