businesses to research new markets for manufactured products and services

proper contacts, leads, research, and training, businesses can expand their
markets and increase sales," said Ray Fogarty, Director of The Chafee Center.

to procurement and logistics," said Keating. "ZANA Network worked hard to
create a single comprehensive resource that SMEs can turn to, and we are
dedicated to continue developing partnerships and offerings that provide the
tools and resources needed so that SMEs can pursue their dreams profitably, no
