The Greene County Pilot Export Assistance Project, an academic-corporate-government partnership program, is a dynamic program to assist small and medium-sized companies realizing export potentiality and capturing a share of international markets. This program is an ongoing program that is expected to last from one to two years. My part consisted of a one quarter study of the export assistance programs, processes and outcomes for selected Greene County firms, that were interested in expanding their existing export markets or have exportable products or services ready for the international market. The project entails training in the use of National Trade Data Bank (NTDB) and other information sources, as well as, specialized training sessions provided by a national professional expert on export assistance.
