SBA Tools for Small Business Exporters and Global Supply Chains
As we continue to confront the COVID-19 crisis, the Tennessee Manufacturers Association (TMA) and U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) are teaming up to make sure that Tennessee manufacturers are aware of SBA resources at their disposal.
With countries affected by coronavirus earlier than the U.S. beginning to re-open, global market opportunities are beginning to re-emerge. This has implications for companies that are selling overseas and/or part of a global supply chain.
The webinar will highlight the Debt Relief component of the CARES Act and implications for SBA export finance products and other resources available to Tennessee manufacturers.
There will be also be time at the end for attendees to ask SBA questions about all these programs.
