The U.S. is experiencing trade growth and regulatory changes with regards to Free Trade and Tariff Preferences Programs. The number of U.S. Free Trade Agreements is growing. The pending Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) will add many new markets to the scope of the U.S. Free Trade Agreements.  Without a thorough knowledge of these programs a company can encounter delays, lost opportunities, and additional expenses due to compliance issues.

Register for both Export Documentation and U.S. Free Trade Agreements and save!

Register for either Export Documentation or U.S. Free Trade Agreements as individual seminars or save when you register for both for only $70.  NEPA Members receive an additional $15 discount when registering for both seminars.

Foreign Military Sales

Radisson Lackawanna Station Hotel, Scranton

The international marketplace offers substantial opportunities for U.S. firms in the business of selling military products and services. These international contracting opportunities can take the form of Foreign Military Sales as well as direct sales of military products and services.  Each type of sale presents unique problems in marketing, contract negotiation, approval, and performance. Contractors who wish to engage in international contracting opportunities successfully and profitably must be able to anticipate and settle the problems that can arise. To do this means being able to navigate a complex web of statutes, regulations, and policies governing FMS, FMF, and U.S. export controls. This specially developed program is such an opportunity — offering guidance on the rules and skills you need to be successful in this area.

Contact Debbie Phillips, NEPA, at dphillips@nepa-alliance.org or (570) 655-5581 for more information or to receive the NEPA Member discount code.  These seminars are sponsored by the U.S. Department of Defense Office of Economic Adjustment and the Pennsylvania Department of Community & Economic Development through the Northeastern Pennsylvania Defense Transition Partnership.
