Trade missions are organised group visits to target markets India or Poland. They provide an excellent opportunity for businesses to visit f countries to find out how business is done and generate valuable sales leads.
Conducting desk research into an overseas market is an essential first step, but to get to grips with a country there is no substitute for visiting.
Travelling to your chosen market for the crucial face-to-face contacts that are needed to win business is a big step. Trade missions give you the security and support of travelling in a group. Our annual programme of trade missions, consisting of a number of multi-sector missions and sectoral missions to India and assistance to mission visiting Poland, is a popular and effective aspect of the overall Passport to Export suite of programmes.
