Alaska, nicknamed the “Last Frontier” is known for its wilderness and wildlife. What you may not realize is the value of Alaska exports counted towards 0.3% of the United States’ overall export volume in 2019, valuing nearly $5 billion.
With only 5 percent of the world’s consumers located within the United States, it is crucial businesses of all sizes include exporting as part of the overall business strategy.
Companies that export are more financially stable and expand faster. Are you interested in your small business competing in that global marketplace? Worried about the risks when it comes to exporting?
