The USA Still Top Choice International Export Destination
Even amidst trade deals and political rhetoric, in the Pacific Northwest corridor, comprised of British Columbia in Canada and the U.S. states of Washington and Oregon (aka Cascadia), it’s been business as usual. Indeed in most recent years many cross-border companies have enjoyed business expansion and growth, UCanTrade, Inc. included.
While doing business in the USA is still the ‘top choice’, Washington State offers B.C. exporters in particular many value added opportunities. Nexus matters. In other words, Americans don’t want the border hassle and expect to purchase from another American retailer. With Blaine border crossings within an hour’s drive of anywhere in the lower-mainland, the nearby USA makes sense. Simply stretch your head office over the border (Learn about Non-Resident Importers) and use the lucrative US market as a spring board for future global expansion.
