New York City is one of the most important centers of international trade in the world. Every day, all kinds of consumer goods, commodities, and professional services are exported and imported by New York City area companies through the metropolitan region's airports and seaports. Many U.S. businesses can increase their bottom line by tapping into foreign customers among the 96% of the world's population found outside of the borders of the United States.
