"Over 20 years ago we decided to focus on the US market. It was both the right vision and decision.”
- Dr Indrek Laul, President and owner, Estonia Piano Factory and AmCham Estonia President
"For many Estonian companies and entrepreneurs, selling and doing business in the USA may sound impossible, for others it may seem like a distant dream… However, as many Estonian success stories have proven already, expanding your business to the USA could actually be more realistic than you thought. In the last 20 years, governments on both sides of the Atlantic have worked towards removing some of these trade barriers, especially for small businesses. Believe it or not, the US is an open and welcoming economy and there are very little obstacles placed in front of you.
What are the Opportunities?
The US economy is market-oriented: private individuals and business firms make most of the decisions, and the federal and state governments buy needed goods and services predominantly in the private marketplace. US business firms enjoy greater flexibility than their counterparts in Western Europe and Japan in decisions to expand capital plant, to lay off surplus workers, and to develop new products. US firms are at or near the forefront in technological advances, especially in computers and in medical, aerospace, and military equipment. Moreover, the US economy is integrated and largely self-contained, with every major industry represented.
The United States consists of many different consumer markets, each with distinct tastes, purchasing behaviors, distribution systems, regulations and climates. Business and consumer practices not only vary from state to state, but city-to-city and town-to-town. 307 million people live in the entire country, which is the third most populous in the world.
What about Challenges?
You should be cautious of the intensely competitive and complex market place. You will need to arm yourself with as much information as possible about the regulatory environment, integrated delivery systems and distribution infrastructure, before attempting to gain access to the US market, as mistakes will be costly."
