As the globalEDGE team returns from our short break, we have just one question for you: how much do you think you know about international business? The globalEDGE team has recently updated the International Knowledge Quiz with the latest data. Test your knowledge with a ten-question quiz covering everything from "which country has the highest export rate" to "which country is home to the largest seaport?". You will receive ten different questions each time you take the quiz, coming from our extensive question bank of over 100 hand-selected questions. Once you answer, you will receive more information after that question and a place to read more about the topic! So, if you think you're up to the task of seeing how much international business knowledge you know, take the quiz!
To find the quiz, go to our "Tools and Data" tab at the top of globalEDGE, click on "Test Your Knowledge," and then "International Business Knowledge Quiz." Or, click the link here.
The globalEDGE team has recently updated the United States State Trade Statistics with the latest data. For every state in the "Global Insights" tab, you can click on "Trade Statistics" in the left-hand column. For each trade statistic, you can find a particular state's exporter rank, importer rank, trade balance rank, total numbers and percentages for exports and imports, and the impact of international trade on the countries economy. You will also find an updated list of each state's top 10 exporters and importers and the top 10 types of goods imported and exported, along with the USD$ amount for each exporter, importer, and good. Overall, this is a great tool for understanding the United States market.
