Research & Resources

Leverage your resources, save time

Market research is a key to successful export planning. Because of the expense of primary market research, most companies rely on secondary data sources. To keep pace enough to obtain useful secondary information, your company needs to read and analyze overseas markets and opportunities daily and to develop a savvy knowledge of the constantly changing political climates in these foreign markets. Who has the time and the expertise to do this while running manufacturing operations here at home?


Key stakeholders across Southwest Illinois, in alliance with the International Trade Center at Southern Illinois University Edwardsville (SIUE), united to form the Southwest Illinois Trade & Investment Council as a strategic initiative to equip companies in our region with the resources they need to make exporting their products a reality.
