Go Global Exporting Series: Exporting Building Blocks

Export Building Blocks – Value of an Export Plan and Product Classification

With 95 percent of the world’s consumers located outside of the United States and foreign competition increasing domestically, selling internationally can help U.S. companies of all sizes increase their competitiveness and achieve real business growth.  Developing an export business plan prior to selling internationally can help you understand the facts, constraints, and goals around your international effort before you spend precious resources pursuing business opportunities that may not offer the highest potential.  The presentation will walk you through the steps of developing an export business plan and discuss how to classify your goods for export.


  • Establishing an Export Plan and HTS product classification (LeeAnne Haworth, U.S. Commercial Service)
  • Export Resources (Jackie Pacheco, Southwestern PA Commission (SPC))
