ICEF Monitor's latest video interview is with Mr Greg Thompson, a Senior International Trade Specialist and Education Team Leader with the United States Commercial Service (USCS), an agency within the US Department of Commerce.

The USCS is a federal government agency dedicated to supporting US-based entities wishing to expand their international outreach.

In our interview, Greg explains the role of the USCS, as well as how agents and schools can use their services. In addition, Greg was also instrumental in kick-starting the study state consortia brands, and he discusses the similarities and differences among them, best practices, and how a state can get started with its own consortia.
