“The Fundamentals seminar is an excellent opportunity to be introduced to the Foreign-Trade Zone program and a great refresher on some of the basics. As a grantee, I used this recent seminar as an opportunity to attend with one of our new FTZ users. Together, we had the opportunity to hear the same information and brainstorm about how they will be able to leverage their new FTZ site to enhance and grow their business. I would recommend Fundamentals to both potential FTZ users who are trying to determine if they should invest in an FTZ and to existing FTZ users and grantees alike to improve their overall knowledge.”
