Personalized support is…

Advisory services and training

“By relying on experts, you can benefit from advisory services, as well as training on issues that are very specific to exporting. It’s important to be prepared, to obtain the technical skills required, to determine a price for export for instance or to navigate customs compliance,” said Margarita Motta, Director of Foreign Market Development at Québec International.

Trade missions

“These missions do represent an investment for the exporter, but for those who take the time to prepare and plan, it can be a wonderful business opportunity and it can also be an occasion to carry out a small field study,” said Erandi Motte Cortés, Director of Market Development and Entrepreneurship at the Chamber of Commerce of Metropolitan Montreal.

ORPEX

“International commissioners with the ORPEX network help companies improve their approaches. They can also provide access to a pool of experts in various sectors or industries for exporters in line with their needs,” said Ms. Motte Cortés.

Networking

Companies, networks of partners and experts share their experience with each other… “Personalized support helped me meet people specialized in legal affairs and even financing,” explained Maxime Thériault, President of TM Couture.
