The Global Access Program (GAP), now in its 6th year, was designed to accelerate the entry of export-ready businesses to global markets. Benefits include customized student research and a half-day conference connecting participants interested in expanding or improving their business with key resources in select countries.
This year, more than 70 attendees shared valuable trends and tips for success in business in China, South Korea, Philippines and India during the conference themed - Global Opportunities in a Sustainable Digital Economy: Focus on Asia held at the Yasuda Center on the CSUSB campus in San Bernardino.
