Dictionary of International Trade, 11th Edition
Handbook of the Global Trade Community
The industry standard! Every business has its own language, lexicon, and lingo, and international trade is no exception. Consider: ad valorem, C-TPAT, most favored nation, FAST, antidumping, NAFTA, countertrade, FOB, ocean bill of lading, letter of credit, FTZ, Harmonized Tariff Schedule, IMF, and chaebol. International trade is a business where “I think I know” isn’t good enough. What you don’t know can really hurt you.
