Trade Research
Knowledge is a competitive advantage.  MITC trade specialists research and respond to your information requests using specialized databases including:
  • Kompass Worldwide
  • WISER Statistics Service
  • International Trade Data Network

We can query the databases by commodity or by geographic region and deliver a market report, a statistical analysis, or a trade lead based on your request. Our trade specialists are trained to keep up to date with the latest regulations and research techniques, and they monitor business trends around the world.
