The Monterey Bay International Trade Association (MBITA), manager of ..........One of the longest standing non-profit global trade websites on the Web established in 1995.....Click HERE to see MBITA/TradePort events..........


There are a number of useful web sites now available to support economic development and provide trade promotion services to SMEs in the Russian Far East (RFE). These web sites span twelve industry sectors - from agriculture to transportation - as defined by the Ad Hoc Working Group. However, most of these sites are unknown to the RFE-SME community, and those that are known are under utilized.

The GTEP project empowers RFE-SMEs to identify and effectively utilize these web sites through a series of online and in-person eLearning courses. These eLearning courses will demonstrate the value of these web sites to RFE-SMEs when applied to any particular region and industry.

The GTEP project will also employ cost-effective and affordable online solutions for RFE-SMEs to automate their import and export transaction process. For example, MBITA is now providing eLearning courses on a web-based application called EximHub, which automates the export documentation procedures for American SMEs. A Russian version of EximHub would be created as part of the GTEP project.

The GTEP project will also incorporate a mechanism for a virtual incubator to support the RFE-SMEs in their economic and trade promotion efforts. This virtual incubator will accomplish the following:

  • Facilitate match-making services with foreign partners
  • Post investment opportunities to the foreign community
  • Provide introductions to various trade associations and business organizations
  • Coordinate services and introductions to regional government agencies and learning institutions

This virtual incubator will establish a foundation for eventual investment into a brick-and-mortar incubator in Vladivostok, Russia.
