PBB Global Logistics has announced plans for its next trade mission to China.
Running from April 2nd to April 16th, 2002, PBB’s privately-led trade mission gives participants the opportunity to visit several key Chinese commercial and industrial centers including Beijing, Dalian, Nanjing, Shanghai, Guilin and Nanning. Participants will have the opportunity to meet one-on-one with high-level Chinese government and business officials, and develop new business agreements and ventures, PBB says.
“In China, personal relationships are the key to your business success,” says Mike Scott, President and CEO, PBB Global Logistics. “By accessing PBB’s extensive network of established Chinese contacts, mission participants will have the chance to build the relationships that are critical to their success in the Chinese market.”
During this 15-day, 6-city mission, participants have the opportunity to meet buyers, suppliers, distributors and manufacturers, strategically selected from across China to match their business needs. Translators will accompany the delegation throughout the mission to ensure effective communication with potential business partners
China: Trade Mission 2002 is PBB’s third business delegation to China and is supported by Canadian Manufacturers & Exporters, Team Canada Inc. and Ontario Exports Inc. In the past, participating companies have made valuable business contacts and many participants continue to reap the benefits from previous missions.
“From the political scene to the business world, it is impossible to find either the quality or the volume of contacts I did in just two short weeks.” said 2001 Mission participant Rod McMillan, International Sales Manager, Darcor Ltd., a Toronto-based manufacturer of casters and other related components.
The announcement was made at the Hubei Investment & Trade Seminar, where PBB arranged for a major multi-sector trade delegation from Hubei Province, China, to visit Toronto for one-on-one meetings with dozens of area businesses. The event was part of PBB’s Access China program, which assists North American firms interested in doing business in China. In addition to PBB’s trade missions and its logistics/travel expertise, the program provides sourcing assistance, accessing a broad network of business specialists with expertise in China, including local market research, corporate law, translation, insurance and other specialized needs.
