The all-day seminar was held at the offices of the Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce and was sponsored by the Commerce Department, HSBC, TDBank and FedEx. Approximately 35 students and instructors attended the seminar which taught many of the basics skills that are needed by small and mid-size companies in order to export U.S. goods and services profitably.
