We are in the final six months of our Gateway to Exporting Program, which is a joint effort between the U.S. Small Business Administration and the New Mexico Small Business Centers Network, via the Small Business Jobs Act of 2010. The goals of the program are to significantly increase exports by New Mexico small businesses to the global market, and to increase the number of companies doing business with the maquiladora industry. Our trade specialists and consultants work hands-on with New Mexican businesses to prepare them for the global market and to identify specific buyers in foreign countries.
Since inception, the Gateway Program has helped New Mexican businesses successfully export almost $5 million to Mexico, Canada, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia and Qatar. We have Gateway funding through the end of December 2013. If you are interested in participating in this program, which has no cost, now is the time to call the IBA to obtain more details.
