The Need to Recognize Global Markets
International trade and the globalization of markets continue to increase. The world marketplace is undergoing a major realignment.

He can serve as the necessary "first step" in making critical international business decisions.

Texas is the number one exporting state in the United States in 2012 with exports of $216 billion. In 2013, Texas saw an increase of $33.2 billion in goods exports, and an increase of $682 billion in services exports. Texas companies are doing more and more international business transactions.
