Importing and exporting is not necessarily be done between countries. But mostly it refers to the exchange of goods between countries. The business trade between two or more countries is referred to as exporting and importing. When a country exports certain product it will import goods from other countries. Not every country is rich in all resources. Be it fruit and vegetable or electronic parts and mineral resources, every resource is distributed to other countries. When a region lacks a particular resource, it will seek the help of another region where that source is found in abundance. This can be done by businessmen when they are in lack certain raw materials for their business. They will undergo importing of goods to get those raw materials. Though exporting and importing is considered as the nucleus of the business, it also helps in improving the national economy. Some regions are rich in fossil fuels and other precious minerals. Those countries will lack other natural resources. In such cases, they will go for the importing of goods from other countries. Export and import help in obtaining a mutual understanding of every region.
Advantages of Importing
When a product or a service is received from another country, it is considered as importing of goods and services. If a company imports products or services from other countries, it will be provided to the consumers of their region. When imported goods are made available to the customers, there will be a variety of choices to choose from. Importing products from various regions or countries will introduce new products to the people. If a world’s top clothing brand is available in a particular country, when it is imported by a business organization, it will make that brand available in that region too. So, it makes the customers enjoy the clothing of the world’s top clothing brand. It is determined by the demand for the product in the region. Importing goods helps in reducing the cost of the product. When four different parts of a particular product are bought from four different regions and they are finally assembled in one region, it will reduce the cost of that final product. Most businessman makes bulk orders and they expect a proper rate for those products. It will finally lower the price of the product to a remarkable extent. One of the major benefits of importing is, it allows the businessman in becoming the market leader in their interested field. Manufacturing of new products will never end in this busy world and hence there will be frequent trading and every company comes forward to market their products before their competitors enter the queue. When an entrepreneur decides to do importing, he will personally visit all the factories and industries that he has decided to make importing, the gathers all the necessary information to make his business a successful one. He gathers all the information from the manufacturer and knows all the pros and cons of a product. He will then decide whether that product will increase the demand in his region. If he decides it will create a great demand, he will then import that product and provide it at the lower rate possible. He also ensures the quality of the product. A businessman knows that the quality of a product will define the fate of the company. Because high-quality products bring reputation to their firm and low-quality products don’t.
Advantages of Exporting
Similar to importing, exporting also helps in business development. If importing lowers the product’s cost whereas, export increases the product sale. Export expands the selling market to the company. They will have a wider range of consumers around the world. Export gives global recognition of the products. Instead of selling the products locally, export gives opportunities to discover and make a place for their goods worldwide. Exporting works for medium and large-scale businesses. Export orders from abroad will increase the profit for the organization. Orders from abroad are relatively higher than the local orders. Businessmen abroad will focus on the quality and quantity of the products. If the product is ordered in bulk, it will gain quick profit. Customers local will buy few products and they are relatively very low compared with those abroad orders. When the product is considered a unique and high-quality one, it will increase the demand abroad. Quality is the major factor that every customer seeks for. No one will ever like to buy low-quality products at a higher price. Quality plays a major role in increasing the profit of the company through exports.
In recent times, exporting and importing seem highly beneficial for businessmen. They will constantly look for an opportunity to make their mark on the global franchise. When the right time comes, they will grab the chance and makes the best use of it. During exports, special attention should be given to the quality of the product as it reflects the standard of the products of the particular region. If few products lost their quality, it will make a name among the people that all the products from a particular region are of low quality. They will not recommend the product to others too. As already said, exports and imports not only benefit the businessman but also have a major role in improving the economy of the nation.
