Traders are typically in a business of “buying low, selling high.” As a trader, your group would like to start a new line of business for your company by importing a product of your choice from your assigned country into the United States and then selling that product at a profit. You should probably have a potential customer or group of customers in mind to help you determine the final destination for your shipment in the US.
