    Rio 2016 SignAthletes around the world have already begun their preparations for the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro.

    For U.S. businesses looking to take advantage of export opportunities, preparations should also begin now.

    The good news (for most of us anyway) is that preparations for businesses don’t require any sprints, hours in the pool, or extraordinarily difficult-looking skills on a pommel horse.

    Actually, the best advantage for a U.S. company looking to win in Brazil is help from the International Trade Administration’s Commercial Service. We have teams on the ground in Brazil actively working with U.S. industry to identify opportunities presented by Rio 2016 and overcome challenges to capitalizing on these opportunities.
