Simply put, we find ways to facilitate the import/export process for your services and products in the right markets with the right partners. We accomplish this by accessing market research, utilizing our expertise and knowledge and leveraging our global connections through the WTCA and our many global partners.
Your Winnipeg Chamber membership includes access to all of these resources across the globe. In essence, the Winnipeg Chamber of Commerce co-owns the WTC licence, allowing members to access of leading international trade tools, including the latest WTCA global initiative known as the Reciprocity Desk.
The Reciprocity Desk is an internal tool that sends and receives trade leads from other WTC organizations around the world. WTC Winnipeg can exchange targeted requests for localized trade information on behalf of its clients to locate suppliers, market information, service providers, etc. Not only does this facilitate trade for Winnipeg Chamber businesses, it also reduces the obstacles to finding vetted companies to deal with in otherwise unknown markets.
All of these tools are available to your company through the WTC Winnipeg staff or your Winnipeg Chamber representative. Please contact us to see how we can help you tackle the global marketplace.
