Inveni gears up for trade mission to China
Inveni Business & Technology Ltd Inveni), the Caribbean’s premier China direct sourcing agency, recently hosted a breakfast seminar at the offices of the T&T Manufacturer’s Association (TTMA)’s to launch its 2016 China trade mission under the theme, Exploring Opportunities, Building Partnerships. The trade mission will take place from October 14 to 23.
Delivering remarks at the seminar was First Secretary and Head of the Commercial Office at the Embassy of the People’s Republic of China in T&T, Tang Yandi who raised the issue of local firms conducting business with Chinese suppliers online and losing money with no forms of redress.
“This is why companies such as Inveni, while it may cost a bit more, are worth it,” he said.
INveni is the organising partner for the China trade mission and it’s managing director Michelle Low Chew Tung delivered the feature presentation.
She said mission delegates will visit the Canton Import and Export Fair in Guangzhou, and mega-cities Beijing and Shanghai. Face to face meetings with key factory personnel and showroom visits will be arranged.
Suppliers are pre-selected utilising Inveni’s supplier verification system beforehand which shapes the B2B programme for participants.
Inveni is offerings an all-inclusive package to businesses interested in participating in this mission.
Meetings with pre-selected suppliers, translation and business direct services, round-trip airfare, domestic travel, in-country ground transport, hotel accommodation, meals and tourism tours are included in the package.
Shenaaza Jakeer, Group Supply Chain Manager at Electrical Industries Group, said: “This opportunity broadens the scope for the sourcing of industrial raw materials and reduces the risk of engaging with dishonest Chinese suppliers.”
The trade mission is one of several efforts to strengthen trade ties between &T and China.
