However, despite Brazil being one of the largest global economies, its exports still do not reach their full potential, highlighting the importance of studying foreign trade, especially in the context of the state of Acre, due to its strategic location and potential in the Amazon Region.</p> <p> </p> <p><strong>Methodology: </strong>This study adopts a descriptive approach and quantitative methodology to meticulously analyze import and export operations in the period from 2019 to 2022, using official data from the Ministry of Development, Industry, Trade, and Services (MDIC), available on the Comex Stat electronic platform.</p> <p> </p> <p><strong>Findings: </strong>The analysis recorded a notable increase in exports, mainly to Peru, the United States, and Hong Kong, driven by the growth of exports of wood, nuts, corn, and soybeans, while imports also grew, with China being the main source of imported products. Maritime transport emerged as the predominant mode for both exports and imports, highlighting the importance of the Pacific Highway for the state's commercial transactions.</p> <p> </p> <p><strong>Research, practical &amp; social implications: </strong>Future research should investigate how the understanding of the presented data can influence the planning for sustainable economic growth in Acre, as well as its global integration in trade, considering relations with strategically neighboring countries.</p> <p><strong> </strong></p> <p><strong>Originality/value: </strong>The results indicate that Acre is strategically expanding its trade based on diversification, integration with key partners, and logistical adaptation, positioning itself for a relevant role in the global scenario and contributing to the development of the Amazon Region.</p> Ana Carolina Silva de Souza, Tamara Maria de Souza Carvalho, Francisco Bezerra de Lima Júnior, Rodrigo Duarte Soliani, Pollyana Rufino de Souza Oliveira, Leonardo Augusto Rodrigues da Silva Nora, Thais Diniz Reis Drumond Copyright (c) 2023 Ana Carolina Silva de Souza, Tamara Maria de Souza Carvalho, Francisco Bezerra de Lima Júnior, Rodrigo Duarte Soliani, Pollyana Rufino de Souza Oliveira, Leonardo Augusto Rodrigues da Silva Nora, Thais Diniz Reis Drumond Mon, 02 Oct 2023 00:00:00 +0000 The Impact of Training on Improving Employee Performance: A Case Study on Employees in the Directorate of Education of Ma'an District <p><strong>Purpose:</strong> The aim of this study is to determine the impact of training on improving the performance of workers in Maan's Directorate of Education.</p> <p> </p> <p><strong>Theoretical framework: </strong>This study will focus on finding a cognitive dimension that contributes to clarifying the concept of training and its dimensions (type of training, training period, trainers) and its impact on the job performance of employees.</p> <p> </p> <p><strong>Design/Methodology/Approach:</strong> The descriptive analytical approach was used in the study. The study sample included 34 male and female employees; 40% of the study population. The data was collected using a questionnaire designed by the researcher after its validity and reliability have been tested.

Furthermore, the results of the multiple regression analysis revealed that there is a statistically significant effect in improving worker job performance due to the trainers’ dimension, but no effect in improving performance through the other two dimensions (quality training, duration of training).
