The Village of Los Lunas promoting Economic Development International Trade

Ralph L. Mims attended the Rural Export Forum in Farmington, N.M on Thursday, March 30th. This was an all-day conference connecting rural manufacturers to potential Export International buyers. As the Village of Los Lunas manufacturing and industrial sectors continue to grow, Los Lunas Manufactures tapping into the international market is a huge vendor revenue pool along with domestic customers. Not only is exporting internationally a smart business move but as the New Mexico manufacturing economy grows, finding customers beyond our borders grows our workforce and expands our economic base.

The US Department of Commerce is available to help any interested New Mexico manufacturer to help find overseas customers and the best foreign market that meets the company’s product’s needs.
