ICMAD Collaborates with the U.S. International Trade Administration (ITA)

ICMAD and the U.S. Department of Commerce’s International Trade Administration have a long-standing partnership to promote the interests and exports of U.S. beauty companies overseas. Together, we help U.S. companies grow their sales, by promoting access to new markets.  We also work together to ensure a level playing field for U.S. companies in terms of the regulations and customs requirements that they must adhere to when they export to other countries.

ITA has a network of trade specialists in 100 U.S. cities and over 85 countries worldwide, that connect U.S. companies to a variety of resources from specialized market research to business matchmaking to finance.  This extensive network of trade specialists assists U.S. companies to identify and evaluate new markets, bringing first-hand knowledge of specific countries business environments and the potential challenges that U.S. companies may face. ITA trade specialists can also assist U.S. companies to identify distributors and business partners, as well as in navigating other stages of the export process.
