Growing Your Business Overseas
When growing your business, an often logical step is to look to international expansion, if the marketplace exists for your products or services overseas.

Considerations for International Business Expansion
Whether you have received a number of international orders and feel there could be more potential from these overseas markets or you already export and want to expand to new markets, globalisation offers many exciting opportunities. There are, however a number of factors your business will need to consider, such as:
- Import and export rules
- Overseas trade fairs and market visits
- Market research and intelligence
- Overcoming language and cultural barriers
- Sourcing contacts, buyers and accessing supply chains
- Funding and financial support
As it is important to be realistic with any business venture, you may just want to seek support in assessing the readiness of your organisation for the challenges of international trade.
