By the term promotion, we understand all those activities developed by the marketing department to disseminate the product in the market with the objective of increasing sales, understanding and image. Promotion policy in foreign trade works within the structure of the marketing mix. Promotion policy applies to each of the countries to which the company wishes to export.
