Bear Holding Group Inc. is a for-profit business that focuses on sourcing products in regions where the US dollar is strong. We help US businesses cut costs and increase profitability by facilitating more efficient methods to obtain products from our focus regions: Africa, Southeast Asia, Indonesia, and South America, while simultaneously promoting sustainable development.
Using trade to promote sustainable development is timely considering the U.S. government has extended major trade legislation, the African Growth and Opportunity Act (AGOA), to make it easier for sub-Saharan African and Caribbean countries to sell their goods to the United States. Nations that meet human rights and labor standards enjoy duty and quota free status for shipments of most goods to the United States.
Several targeted countries have ‘favored nation’ status from the IMF and World Bank, duty free access of manufactured exports to the USA and EC. Several are members of the Multilateral Investment Guarantee Agency (MIGA). Those adhering to the guidelines are entitled to bypass import licensing.
