Thought do a quick follow-up on "Sister Cities" as those withe vet owned businesses or contemplating relocation and opening a business might find useful????
From, once again, web-link, for example only Sister city - Wikipedia the following in "quotes" is provided- "Sister cities or twin towns are a form of legal or social agreement between towns, cities, counties, oblasts, prefectures, provinces, regions, states, and even countries in geographically and politically distinct areas to promote cultural and commercial ties. The modern concept of town twinning, conceived after the Second World War in 1947, was intended to foster friendship and understanding among different cultures and between former foes as an act of peace and reconciliation, and to encourage trade and tourism. By the 2000s, town twinning became increasingly used to form strategic international business links among member cities. "
Take for example Alabama only and number of veteran owned business at: Alabama Veteran Owned Business Numbers | VOSBs and SDVOSBs in Alabama as simply an example (see in "quotes" below from listed article)
|GEOGRAPHICAL AREA||ALL FIRMS||VETERAN OWNED|
(at least 51%)
|50% VETERAN OWNED / 50% NON-VETERAN OWNED|
|Percentage of U.S.||1.4%||1.8%||1.6%|
|Percentage of VOSB / SDVOSB Alabama businesses:||11.8%||5.1%|
|AL: 11.8% vs. the national state average: 9.04%||+2.76% (31% Higher)|
Then for example only, might want to visit some following web-sites, if business has potential of going international-perhaps:
