Orissa International organized a successful outbound trade mission to Tennessee in September 2023, bringing together six key Vietnamese companies, including four distributors and two furniture manufacturers. The program included visits to seven respected hardwood suppliers in Tennessee, arranged by the Tennessee Department of Agriculture, creating valuable networking opportunities that lay the foundation for future collaborations and trade partnerships. During the trade mission’s visit to Tennessee, the delegation embarked on a series of site visits and meetings with prominent hardwood companies in the state, fostering meaningful exchanges about hardwood species, quality grades, and availability. These discussions provided valuable firsthand knowledge and established essential connections within the Tennessee hardwood industry, contributing to the mission’s overall success.
