Orissa International helped a trade promotion agency in Virginia, USA, to run a virtual trade mission and organize virtual business matching meetings between Virginian companies and distributors and customers across the South East Asia region. The eight participating businesses from Virginia were in various industries such as construction, chemical, education solutions, defense, insulation materials, industrial 3D printing, tobacco, and animal nutrition. Each of the companies was looking to enter two markets where they considered their products and services to have greater potential.
Orissa International’s teams in Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand, and Vietnam reached out to 245 companies across the region and arranged 80 meetings for the eight Virginia companies, which were conducted via video conference platforms like Google Meet, Zoom, and WebEx, among others. During the virtual trade mission, the Virginia companies had the opportunity to meet with some major local companies that have a significant local presence in their respective industries, and with government-funded research institutions.
