An export is defined as any good or commodity that is transferred from one country to another in a legitimate fashion. The thing that many companies that participate in exporting do not realize is that to export is a privilege, not a right.

The World Trade Center St. Louis attempts to educate its members on the best way to take advantage of the privilege of exporting. From culturally focused programs that center on the best way to export to a specific region, to technical seminars that outline the rules, regulations, and paperwork that lead to successful exporting, and all of the general information in between, World Trade Center St. Louis covers all of the bases when it comes to export education.
