North Loudoun Corporation is ideally suited to promote U.S. and Canadian exports in both countries.
South Riding, VA (PRWEB) November 28, 2011
North Loudoun Corporation (http://www.NorthLoudoun.com) announced that it has been selected through competitive review by the Province of Nova Scotia, Canada, as an export consulting services provider for Nova Scotia Business Inc. (http://www.novascotiabusiness.com) (NSBI) to provide market entry and business development services to NSBI on a project basis. NSBI is the business promotion agency of the province, and is based in downtown Halifax, NS.
“The advantages for an American company to import from, or to outsource work to Nova Scotian firms are considerable--new technologies, products and services and a highly trained workforce,” said Ernest Troth, North Loudoun’s president. “There are financial incentives to locating an office in Nova Scotia, such as a payroll rebate program and research-and-development tax incentives. Halifax is a short flight from the East Coast of the U.S., and travelers returning to the States actually clear U.S. customs in Halifax before arrival in the U.S., so there’s no long wait upon arrival in the U.S.”
“Nova Scotians look at the mid-Atlantic states as an excellent place to identify a licensed manufacturing partner, sales representatives or to conduct direct sales. Opportunities in Loudoun County – one of the richest and best-educated counties in the U.S. and in Northern Virginia—especially should be considered by Canadian firms serious about sales in the U.S.,” said Troth.
Troth also noted that North Loudoun has recently been listed by the Government of Canada as business development and market entry consultants in the Virginia, Maryland and District of Columbia region of the mid-Atlantic, with listing provided by the Office of the Trade Commissioner (http://www.tradecommissioner.gc.ca). “This listing by the Trade Commissioner Service gives us greater visibility to Canadian firms seeking export sales in the U.S., and gives us an opportunity to serve clients generated by our office in Calgary, Alberta,” said Troth. “Often a U.S. firm which buys from Canada is also able to export their own products to Canada, so there are advantages in buying from and selling to Canadian customers.”
North Loudoun Corporation is a member of the Canadian Association of Defence and Security Industries (http://www.DefenceandSecurity.ca), based in Ottawa, Ontario, and the Western Canada Defence Industries Association (http://www.WCDIA.com). “These groups give us visibility so we can better position U.S. companies for exports to key Canadian customers, “ said Troth. “Exports work both ways, and U.S. exports to Canada in 2011 have totaled more than $210 billion through September.”
