Multi-sector Trade Mission Mexico & Colombia (October 26 to November 1, 2013)

26.02.2013 By: TRANSFER Consultancy and Rotterdam Chamber of Commerce

CIVETS, Next 11, EAGLEs and Nest are all terms to indicate the generation behind the BRICs. Due to their strong economic growth, Mexico and Colombia, in particular, are marked as flagship emerging markets. If you are interested in exploring your potential in these countries, Transfer Consultancy offers you a unique opportunity in cooperation with the Chamber of Commerce Rotterdam. Together we will organize a multi-sector trade mission to Mexico and Colombia from October 26 to November 1, 2013.

With a trade mission you can generate new-business leads and convert existing ones. Within a relatively short period you can have a good and reliable impression of your company’s opportunities in these growing markets.

Is it interesting for your company?
The trade mission is meant for companies interested in the opportunities that Mexico and Colombia have to offer. Especially the following sectors are promising: construction and infrastructure, transport and logistics, industrial supply, oil & gas, (renewable) energy, retail food and non-food, environmental technology and agribusiness.

What is being offered during this trade mission?
After an intake interview with each individual participant, a customized matchmaking program will be offered. This means that each participating company will get a total of 6-8 appointments with interested Mexican and Colombian business partners.
