Trade Missions

Foreign Trade Promotion agencies and various Industry Associations often organize out-bound Trade Missions to promote foreign trade in economic development in their regions. It is one of the most effective and efficient option for companies interested in expanding their businesses in the overseas markets. Companies and organizations greatly benefit by participating in a trade mission as it gives them a first-hand experience of their target market.

Large companies have often explored new geographies for developing new customer base for their products and for sourcing new supplier base from various countries. Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs), on the other hand, need local expert to help them understand business environment, government regulations, business culture and finding out potential partners who would be interested to work with them. Trade missions can save companies valuable time and resources by maximizing contact with their prospective partners, distributors, agents, representatives, local government organizations and industry bodies.
