October 2014 Was A Record Month For USA Imports From China

The U.S. Census Bureau reports that despite October 2014 being a record month for imports from China, the October trade deficit in goods and services actually decreased by $0.2 billion from September, to $43.4 billion.

The decrease in the deficit reflects a $2.3 billion increase in exports to $197.5 billion. This increase in exports was greater than the $2.1 billion increase in imports to $241.0 billion. Both exports and imports of capital goods reached a new record this month, with exports at $47.7 billion, and imports at $51.0 billion.

Similarly, October marked records in both exports ($22.3 billion) and imports ($27.4 billion) with Mexico.

This leads to the Census Bureau's Graph of the Month, featuring imports of cellphones. Imports of cellphones into the United States have trended upward since 1997, with China an important source.

New Import Export Business Resouce Added To

NEW IMPORT EXPORT INTERNATIONAL TRADE RESOURCE: This is the first NEW Import Export Business resource we have added to our website in nearly two years and it is one we are very excited about - VIDEOS that are targeted specifically to Importing - Exporting - Customs - International Trade.  

The site is a sub-domain of and it has just gone live.  I would like to ask your help since it is FREE to you and has been established for your benefit and unlimited use.  The favor is to notify us of any and all videos that may not be specific or appropriate to B2B and Global Trade.

The video compiling software is not infallible and it pulls videos from various platforms but due to some video producers mislabeling their videos or for whatever reason, some of the videos need to be manually deleted and that is where you can help us.  Just use the contact form to notify us of the URL or name of the video and if we agree that it does not belong in this venue, it will be deleted. We have already edited out over 700 videos but there are still another 700+ Import Export Global B2B videos available with new videos added every few days.

Go check out our NEW video section NOW (we look forward to your feedback):  Import Export Business Videos

During the recent recession, companies that were selling to foreign markets fared better than those who only sold domestically. Is exporting part of your business strategy? If not, you should look closer into the benefits of exporting and how it can help your business grow and become more resilient to changes in the economy. If you are already exporting, to what new countries will you be introducing your products in 2014?

Is your company missing out on a $2-4 billion market?  Then selling to NATO is a market you should be looking into.

I know this is a short notice but there is going to be a Webinar on Thursday, 23 January 2014 titled "Selling To NATO".

If you have never considered this market place then the following facts might assist you making the decision to research it further:

  • NATO is an intergovernmental military alliance headquartered in Brussels, Belgium, with an annual spending budget of US$2-4 billion.
  • NATO buys a vast range of products and services, not just IT and defense hardware. They procure everything from sponges to consulting services.
  • NATO is going through a procurement reform; instead of 14 procurement agencies, there will only be three. “Early adapters” will benefit the most.
  • NATO sales can only be awarded to NATO member countries which excludes China. This gives a distinct advantage to the United States.
