  U. S. State Department brings Delegation from the Middle East for a visit.
From time to time  during the year, the US State Department, through their International Visitor Leadership Program bring delegations from around the world to visit with us.  They wish to obtain the views of Small Business, and begin to understand the trials and tribulations that Small Business Start ups go through.
Many are very interested in How we are able to take "older buildings", as we have, and revitalize them into operating warehouse facilities that not only put employees to work, but also are able to service the global market.
This month the delegation was comprised of representatives from 10 different countries, from all walks of life, including manufacturers that are looking to export to the United States.

Representatives were present to tour our facilities from Algeria, Egypt, Iraq, Jordan, Libya, Saudi Arabia, Syria, Tunisia, United Arab Emirates and the Palestinian Territories.

U.S. trade gap narrows for record sixth month
Fri Mar 13, 2009 8:53am EDT
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. trade deficit narrowed 9.7 percent in January to its smallest since October 2002, as both imports and exports tumbled for the sixth consecutive month in the face of shrinking global demand, a U.S. government report showed on Friday.

The monthly trade gap totaled $36.0 billion, below a Wall Street consensus estimate of $38.0 billion. The deficit has now narrowed for a record six consecutive months, the longest previous run being from April through August 2007.
U.S. exports of goods and services fell 5.7 percent from December to the lowest since September 2006 and imports tumbled 6.7 percent to lowest since March 2005.

"The narrowing reflects the ongoing economic downturn. U.S. consumers are pulling back and that's resulting in fewer imports while exports are falling," said Mark Zandi, chief economist at Moody's Economy.com in West Chester, Pennsylvania. "It reflects how bad economic conditions are everywhere."
