oprasad: I am 81 years old retired officer from PARLIAMENT OF INDIA. A few years after retirement, I started my small export unit as merchant exporters. I did very well till a few years back when China made entry in the products I was exporting. Recession in USA and Europe also hit my exports. I had not sent any shipment since GST introduced. I did only bulk exports. Minimum export value being USD 1000 (FOB) I shall be grateful if you may kindly make it convenient to let me know what help and consultancy could I seek from you. All.Biz people have been approaching me to obtain their membership. They say that they have their offices in 35 countries and will generate business in those countries for us. I do not know to what extent they are trust worthy because when I requested them to send some sample leads (of course with contact details hidden), they did not agree to it. Do you provide addresses (including e-mail ids) of genuine buyers? If so, what are terms and conditions for this service.
