International business to the USA
The USA represents a huge business opportunity for UK businesses. The US economy is the largest in the world and is worth a staggering $18.56 trillion, the UK is the seventh largest trading partner of the USA.
With a population of in excess of 324 million and major cities to serve such as Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Houston, Los Angeles, Miami, New York, Philadelphia, San Francisco cracking the US market is a likely recipe for success for any UK exporting business.
With the benefit of English being a common language and the warmth of the special US/English relationship the US is “open for business” and international mail is one way of gaining access to this lucrative marketplace.
