ASM to help businesses compete globally

The Anderson Schools of Management and the New Mexico Council of International Trade (NMCIT) have founded an information clearinghouse and resource center designed to help businesses in the state compete in the global marketplace.

The office, located at the Technology Ventures Corporation, 808 Bradbury SE, Suite 203, is provided by UNM and staffed by NMCIT’s Mary Alonso and ASM graduate student assistants.

“If a business owner needs information about the tax consequences of exporting to Mexico, we can help,” Alonso said. “If they want to talk to experts on changes in transportation and shipping issues or need to assess which foreign markets offer the most potential for their products, we can help. If we don’t have the answers immediately, we have the contacts to find out.”

“I see active participation in the global markets as vital to the economic development of New Mexico,” said Howard Smith, ASM dean.

NMCIT, an Albuquerque-based non-profit, promotes international trade, cultural exchange and economic development throughout the state.

To contact the clearinghouse call 272-7340 or e-mail nmcofit@hotmail.com.
