The good? There is a very wide range of services, in both industry and government, to assist SMEs at every stage of their journeys to export.
The bad? Figuring out who to call, when, and about what is often complex or confusing. Short overviews and cases offered by players in this broad suite of services will link their respective services together, and build up a coherent and navigable export strategy picture.
