I am very happy to inform you that I did indeed pass the [Customs Broker] test. I couldn’t have done it without the prep class and I am very thankful that you made it as interesting as it was. Thanks again!

Great program and great personnel.

The GEEP staff was very helpful in guiding us and logistics of the show. At this point it is hard to tell what impact this show will have on trading trends in Hong Kong/ China. However, the contacts with the US participants may result in potential increase in trading of Alpha Scents products in some other countries.

The GEEP program allowed us to establish a “first foothold” in Asian markets. The Eco Expo Asia exhibition was a good venue around which we structured several valuable meetings.
Resolute Marine Energy, Inc., Bill Staby, CEO
I am pleased with the opportunity to exhibit at Eco Expo Asia and appreciate the support from the Dept. of Commerce and the local staff. It was nice to have the details arranged. The sponsorship [from CITD's Green Export Enabler Program] made it possible for us to attend. Thank you for supporting our company. We have big hopes to sell our product to the world.
StreetVac International, Mark Bell, Licensing Specialist
Great opportunity for startup companies like us to discover the Asian market and get the inside support. Special thanks from the SMT-Rail team.

This program [Green Export Enabler Program] is good for communication: Best for SME’s. Communications for one tech with others is very good (companies are not alone in the market). This is a good program to bring companies together.
Royal Service Air Condition Group, Thomas Podgurski, Group Director
The only portion of the GEEP [Green Export Enabler] program that we truly utilized on this occasion was the support for trade event participation in Eco Expo Asia 2012. The experience has been transformational for our company. The number of specific individual contacts; the general exposure, the credibility, and the improved understanding of local business culture is astounding. We feel extremely confident that many of the seeds planted here will grow into fruitful business transactions. We would not have been able to do this without the GEEP program.
