  • East Asia- Most attention with regard to US foreign trade seems to focus on either US trade with petroleum-exporting countries or East Asia.  To be sure, East Asian countries such as Japan, South Korea and China account for the largest amount of the US trade deficit.  However it is the very reason for these deficits that make East Asia such a wonderful opportunity for US companies.  With demand for goods and services in many Asian countries, especially China, with over 1.5 billion people currently or soon to be outpacing domestic supply, as well as the rapid advancement of their own high-technology industries, many Asian countries, from Thailand to Japan will need more and more goods and services from foreign markets and companies; companies like yours.  The Rogers Law Group has experience in Asia, it has a detailed understanding of the various regulatory and cultural norms that govern doing business there, information we use to help you.
