Doing business in the U.S.A. is quite easy as long as you are aware of existing laws and regulations. Exporting to the U.S.A. is a safe and simple process as well, as long as you have the right information and the right connections. Global Chamber® was established as an organization that supports that. We give information, help with connections, and promote goods and services of exporters and importers.
Global Chamber New York City has helped companies export from New York, and export from around the world into New York and the U.S.A. We have many interesting stories about how this has been done.
For instance, earlier this year a French company producing Champagne in the South of France, Comtesse Tatiana Champagne (comtesse-tatiana.com/en), approached us for help in the U.S.A. market. By the way, the company has no relation to me (Tatiana); the name similarity is only a coincidence! They wanted to find a distribution network in the U.S.A. Before we began to work together, Global Chamber New York City, with our headquarters, did a case study. We wanted to find out if this Champagne will sell here. We approached a couple of big distribution companies to get advice and present them the product. We got nice feedback, and after that we encouraged our member to invest in the procedure of getting a license.
Global Chamber New York City introduced Comtesse Tatiana to a very well-respected lawyer and now, with the license, has begun selling the product in the U.S.A. Early returns are encouraging! We truly believe that this Champagne will have a lot of success in the U.S.A. Importing, exporting and investment — we are involved in all these, every day.
Our team has been helping many companies in all kinds of industries, from food and beverage to automotive and industrial, to technology and healthcare. We work closely with the best people within the regulatory system and with the best service providers equipped to do cross-border business, from accountants to bankers, financiers, real estate advisers, attorneys, marketers, logistics suppliers and consultants. We’re available to those interested in expanding their international business success.
