For our 17th Episode, we turned the tables from exporting to importing, where we had a delightful chat with long-time customs broker professional, John T. Hyatt of C.H. Powell & Co. An expert on the history of the Port of New Orleans, John shares marvelous stories about the banana and fruit business, as well as other commodities that New Orleans is known for, including sugar and coffee.
His longtime involvement in public speaking on subjects such as DR-CAFTA informed a really good discussion about trade agreements and other subjects.

We invite you to listen, and then join a conversation about this episode and exporting in general. This is an important time for the export community to share what is happening in our sectors and how each of us is dealing with one of the most consequential health and economic events of our lifetime. Please post your comments below. We’re also on Twitter!
Thank you for joining us!
