Commerce Department Publishes Export Yellow Pages
Updated Resource Offers U.S. Firms the Opportunity to Generate New Export Contacts and Business
Washington - Today, the U.S. Department of Commerce released the 2007-multimedia buyers’ guide, The Export Yellow Pages (EYP), which highlights the goods and services of U.S. companies interested in export business. This publication also includes a U.S. Trade Assistance Directory that offers details to federal export programs.
“The 2007 Export Yellow Pages is an easily accessible, affordable way for U.S. exporters to increase their contacts and expand their business worldwide,” said Commerce Under Secretary for International Trade Franklin L. Lavin. “The 2007 multimedia publication offers enhanced features for end-users worldwide, and provides a valuable, up-to-date resource for U.S. producers and international businesses."
U.S. companies register their commercial profiles with the EYP to attract new overseas customers, reach new export business partners, and find U.S. export service firms. This year’s publication offers 65,000 goods and services categories for precise end-user registration and search functions. It also provides an on-line search capability available in 11 languages and has the accessibility to an on-line network that attracts prospective international buyers of goods and services.
Produced through a public-private partnership, the EYP is available in print at the Department of Commerce’s Export Assistance Centers, U.S. embassies, U.S. consulates, and via the Internet at http://www.theexportyellowpages.com/. The worldwide availability makes it convenient for customers to connect with U.S. companies interested in new export business. Companies can register their business profiles on-line or by contacting Global Publishers LLC at 1-877-390-2629.
