How was your experience participating in the "Women & Business Contest" at Pacific Trade Show Toronto 2019?
I am looking at Canada as a potential market for my products. It was a great to learn from other businesswomen and the experience of meeting key people to open the market.
What advice would you give to a company led by women looking for opportunities in the international market?
My advice is to be patient; it is a process that is not fast. It takes hard work, time and investing money to do it.
The Pacific Trade Show is our annual event organized as an international program and a platform looking to bring together knowledge and connections to support entrepreneurs that are interested in learning more about international trade with the final outcome that is EXPORT.
