  2. Other than import export, obtaining “international trade directory catalogues” of products in huge demand for the purpose of global sourcing will also be very helpful.
  3. After obtaining all the required information, you have to do proper research on the import and export licensing processes, opening bank accounts and taxation rates in the country. You require an extended license number that has to be mentioned on all the export and import documents.
  4. There are a few products which are not permitted for global sourcing due to various reasons. You should stay away from them.
