Expand to International Markets


Exporting to international markets can help defense businesses grow and diversify their revenue streams. Defense contractors interested in exporting should educate themselves on whether exporting is an option for them and will need to think about with market identification, trade shows, regulations for exporting defense materials, and how to effectively manage an export program.
