In God We Trust

WELCOME

Welcome to IBNewsmag, the only publication focused on international business matters of Small & Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs); the people and companies comprising the lifeblood of global trade, economic growth and job creation. In the same way our nation’s SMEs exhibit passion, vision and confidence in their enterprises, IBNewsmag has been reporting on global businesses, and their owners, since 2004 with the same verve.

 

Each monthly edition features interesting and successful businesses along with news and information from around the globe, allowing you to learn and grow from other SMEs outside your network. IBNewsmag helps SMEs, and those who serve them, cull the most relevant and practical information available for global business. Enjoy off-the-beaten-path features, fun tips and breaking news to boost exports, international services and help your global business navigate what can often be difficult waters. Whether it's component and raw material imports or supply-chain issues, IBNewsmag covers a vast variety of global trade topics. Each edition also features a foreign country profile to assist your business there, as well as, US-based international business success stories and feature articles on such pertinent, and sometimes challenging, subjects as international logistics, entrepreneurship, legal matters and banking/finance.

 

Subscribing to IBNewsmag will help you navigate international waters with intelligence and grace designed to help you succeed. IBNewsmag is welcomed monthly by thousands of SMEs, government and education leaders throughout the USA with additional readership in many foreign countries.
