ROCKFORD, March 27 — The Illinois SBDC International Trade Center of the Rockford Area (ITC) held an event on March 27 regarding due diligence for conducting business internationally.
“Preventing Scams, Fraud, and Deceit in International Business” featured Louise Kern, managing director of GloBIS, as the keynote speaker.
