Link Interactive has launched Global Business Web, an online trade resource, to assist organizations in doing business internationally. Comprised of more than 5,000 information resources, articles, discussions, and services, Global Business Web is available free of charge.

Global Business Web provides contact with suppliers, trade leads, embassies, freight carriers, translators, directories, and service providers; as well as information on currencies, tariffs, legal restrictions, regional industry associations, banking and government policies in all regions of the world. It also features news and important regional facts and statistics. In addition, individuals can elect to receive a monthly e-mail newsletter including business headlines from around the world, featured articles and information regarding upcoming events.

Global Business Web’s discussion forums allow participants to post questions and announcements, obtain answers, gather information and make contacts related to global business issues and opportunities. The discussions provide participants with a forum to conduct research; promote their organization, products and services; identify contacts and resources; and access experts.

According to Paula Murphy, Director, Massachusetts Export Center, “Global Business Web has become a tremendous asset to our organization. In addition to the site’s broad range of resources, the discussion forums provide access to business opportunities and an extensive community of experts from around the world to help organizations address their business challenges.”
