“International trade is a cornerstone of our economy in New Hampshire, and when trade is done right, it helps our innovative businesses compete – creating jobs and spurring economic growth,” Hassan said.
“The work of the Granite State District Export Council is critical in these efforts, providing key support and advice to New Hampshire businesses looking to enter or expand into new international markets.
“I am focused on supporting your work – ensuring that our businesses can trade on a level playing field, and that you have the resources and support you need to thrive in the international marketplace,” she said
