The Nuts and Bolts of International Trade: Incoterms® 2020

 

It is easy to think international trade is all about convoluted acronyms that describe trade agreements that take a long time to negotiate. A sampling of the ones you have probably heard about recently include CPTPP, CETA and CUSMA.

 

Indeed, the trade world is not short of acronyms, but here is another crucial one for businesses to know called Incoterms®, which stands for International Commercial Terms.

 

Updated every 10 years, Incoterms® are developed by the International Chamber of Commerce to act as a common set of rules between exporters and importers in the course of international trade in goods. The reason they are used by buyers and sellers is that they provide a mutual understanding of who bears the costs and responsibilities at various stages of international trade transactions. Not using the appropriate Incoterms®, or at least the one you thought you were using, greatly affects a company’s bottom line. For this reason, we have partnered with Forum for International Trade Training to help Canadian businesses get up to speed on these new rules with a series of training sessions.

 

Read this month’s 5 Minutes for Business to learn more about how your business can navigate this acronym-saturated, but crucial, world.

 

 

"New to the Frew"

 

 

 

The annual Newcomers Night will be held on Wednesday November 20th at the Royal Canadian Legion Renfrew from 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. Please share this event and welcome our new residents to the community.

Showcase your business.  

Display tables are

available to promote your business and welcome our new neighbours for only $10.00 per table. If you would like to be a part of this evening contact the Chamber office to book your table. Space is limited.

 

 

 

 

Mission Statement:

The Renfrew & Area Chamber of Commerce is a member organization delivering value to our business community with a focus on advocacy, education and networking. We will be recognized as the Voice of Business for Renfrew and surrounding area, dedicated to working with stakeholders to help our community thrive.

Mark Your Calendars for the Biggest Tourism Conference in Ontario's Highlands
Every fall, tourism champions from across Ontario’s Highlands gather for the largest tourism conference in the region to share best practices, network, and learn from industry experts. Mark your calendars for Wednesday, October 23, 2019 and join us for OH!Tourism Summit 2019 as we explore the power of partnerships and how together, we are growing tourism and becoming Ontario's most talked about region! This year, we’ll be gathering at Germania Club Pembroke to explore the theme of Stronger Together: Growing Tourism Through Collaboration. Watch your inbox and the conference website for future announcements and in the meantime, save the date!

Tips for Sharing Events

This month on our Come Wander Industry Blog, we give our top three suggestions for simple, quick, and free ways to help spread the word. Please click here to read the full post.

The Guardian Includes Haliburton on Fall Colour Round Up
We already know how incredible the fall colours are in Ontario's Highlands, but thanks to The Guardian's article 10 Unmissable Autumn Experiences in Ontario, British travellers may soon be booking their trip to Haliburton, which was listed in the article.
 
Two Local Blogs Highlight Neat Coffee Shop
Not one, but two local lifestyle blogs did a feature on Neat Coffee Shop last month. Apartment 613 put together a great piece on why Neat should be on the radar of all music lovers in Ottawa, if it isn't already, and Narcity Ottawa wrote about why its readers should pay the Burnstown cafe a visit.
 
CBC Shines Light on New Lanark County Experiences
Two new Lanark County experiences were the focus of recent CBC Ottawa articles. Owners of the newly opened Gaslight Cafe & Sign Gallery spoke to CBC about their unique space in Almonte, while Perth operator, The Axe Shop, explained what their new 'rage cage' is all about.
 
Round Up Lists Featuring Ontario's Highlands
It was a busy month with quite a few other operators or locations featured in various round-up list articles by local media. StyleDemocracy.ca chose Grail Springs Retreat as one of the wellness retreats near Toronto to visit while Narcity Toronto urged readers to check out Egan Chutes Provincial Park. Narcity Ottawa's list of late August activities saw both The Great Water War event in Renfrew and the heritage canoe paddle in Smiths Falls make the list.
 
Lanark Cottage Getaway Profiled on KiMagic.com
The folks behind KiMagic.com wrote about their getaway to a cottage on Long Lake in Lanark County, and what they did in Perth and the surrounding area to keep busy, including Stewart Park Festival.
