Orissa International assisted the state of Illinois’ Trade and Investment Promotion Agency in organizing a virtual business matching trade mission for Illinois-based companies to select Southeast Asian countries, particularly Indonesia, Thailand, Vietnam, and the Philippines. Four Illinois companies participated in the multi-sector and virtual trade mission. They were from varied industries such as cosmetics, healthcare, packaging, robotics and education, and were looking for both distributors and end-users, as well as franchise partners. Over a period of two months, our team was able to contact 140 companies across the target countries, arranging and facilitating 21 meetings in total, with 5 meetings set up for each of the Illinois companies.
