Hello, John McDonnell here, with your latest issue of Really Useful Sites for 
International Trade Professionals. In this issue I review a site about Spain, 
the world's tenth-largest economy, and a country with lots of opportunities for 
trade. I also found a site that's a gateway to the kind of economic and social 
research that will boost your company's bottom line. Want to hear what callers 
are saying on Italian talk radio? I found a site that will help you connect to 
radio stations worldwide through your computer. Lastly, I've got a site that 
gives you the inside scoop on the best free software on the Web.
If you'd like more information about international trade, go to FITA's 
International Trade/ Import-Export Portal <> ( 
), an excellent source for trade leads, news, events, and a link library of 
7,000 sites related to international trade.


Although Spain is little more than twice the size of Oregon, it's a country 
worth looking into if you're interested in trade -- it's one of the five 
largest economies in the European Union, and has the tenth largest economy in 
the world. As a member of the EU, Spain's trade barriers are minimal, and its 
population enjoys a world-class standard of living, with money to spend on 
consumer and capital goods. 
If that sounds attractive to you, go to the Library of Congress Spain Portal 
<> ( ) to find out 
more. This is a gateway site, with links to information-rich Web sites about 
all aspects of Spanish life. There are sites about business, trade, the 
economy, culture, education, government, politics, law, travel, and much more. 
In the Business section, there are company directories, trade databases, 
articles about doing business in Spain, business news, a glossary of Spanish 
business terms, statistics, and stock research, among other items. 
There are many more links to Spain at the FITA site. Go to 
<>, click on Regional Resources and 
Multi-Lateral Trading Areas in the left column, then scroll down to Europe and 
click on Spain in the drop-down box. Or simply type "Spain" in the search box 
at <>.  


There are fancy Web sites out there with a lot of bells and whistles, but 
sometimes the plain jane sites have more to offer. Take socialchange 
<> ( ). This site is 
basically just a set of links to sociological data on the Web, but the links 
are all high quality sites that have reliable information. You'll find links to 
world demographic studies, population statistics, country profiles, historical 
analyses, economic theory, organizations, and much more. Don't be put off by 
its academic tone -- if you check out the links, you'll find this site has a 
lot to offer the practical businessperson.  

500,000 companies in 33 countries <> 
EUROPAGES <> is a business 
directory listing 500,000 companies selected for their import-export dynamism 
in all business sectors in over 35 European countries. EUROPAGES is an ideal 
tool for finding new clients, suppliers and partners: it is a popular reference 
guide with European purchasing directors. 
<>, your connection to the 
business world ! 
One single ad in EUROPAGES generates an average of 102 business contacts in one 
year. People like Peter from Denmark say, "EUROPAGES is our best investment for 
export." Click here <> to 
learn about how your company can be featured in EUROPAGES. 


If you haven't listened to the radio on your computer yet, you don't know what 
you're missing. There's a world of information, talk, and music available, and 
it's just a mouse click away. If you have speakers and a reasonably fast 
connection, you can listen to talk radio from the UK, oldies from Australia, 
business news from Japan, alternative music from Poland -- and that's just for 
starters. To find what's available, go to Radio-Locator 
<> ( ), a site that 
has a database of over 10,000 radio station Web sites, with 2500 of those 
offering daily audio streams over the Internet. You'll need a program to play 
the streaming audio, but most radio station sites have links to places where 
you can download these programs.  


I just bought a new notebook computer, loaded with the standard package of 
software. There are lots more programs I want to have on my computer, but I 
don't want to spend hundreds of dollars buying them. That's why I'm glad I 
found The 46 Best-Ever Freeware Utilities 
<> ( ). This site has 
reviews of 46 great "freeware" programs, with links to sites where you can 
download the software. There are freeware alternatives to most commercial 
software programs which are every bit as good, and sometimes better, than the 
well-known brands. You can download and use these programs for free, although 
most have extra features that are available in paid versions. Take a look -- 
you'll find a freeware program for almost every need.
