DOING BUSINESS IN MEXICO – Additional Feature
October 14 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm| $45
Through trade missions to Mexico over the past six years, we have identified a number of opportunities for BC’s value-added wood manufacturers. We will be bringing the experts to help you learn more about the current and growing opportunities, and getting your product to the Mexican market.
Nora Gonzalez of G&G Gestoria, our expert on Mexico’s wood products industry, will be joining us from Guadalajara to share her insights on the opportunities and challenges for BC’s value-added wood manufacturers. Nora recently brought a number of enthusiastic buyers to the Global Buyers Mission and together with our last successful trade mission to Mexico, we are very optimistic that the interest from the market will continue to grow. Participating B.C. companies have already seen sales growth and our goal is to continue the momentum, while finding further new opportunities.
