Dictionary of International Trade, 10th 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.

The World Trade Press Dictionary of International Trade is the most respected and largest-selling dictionary of trade in the world. It is in use in more than 100 countries by importers, exporters, bankers, shippers, logistics professionals, attorneys, economists, and government officials.

More than 360,000 copies in print!
