As a member of the prestigious ‘CommonwealthFirst Export Champions’, BOXARR will be part of an intensive international program including tailored trade missions to fast growing Commonwealth markets such as Australia, Canada, India, Malaysia, Nigeria, and South Africa.
BOXARR’s CEO Alasdair Pettigrew will be joining the CommonwealthFirst Trade Mission to the ‘11th Toronto Global Forum’, a major annual business event organized by the International Economic Forum of the Americas. The theme this year is: ‘Redefining Globalization’.
The trade mission to Canada will provide BOXARR with access to the Canadian market, in order to find appropriate business partners and meet global leaders, key personnel and administrators related to business, export, trade and investment.
Lord Marland, Chairman of the Commonwealth Enterprise and Investment Council, said: “This program is a wonderful way of demonstrating both, the ingenuity of British businesses and the huge opportunities in Commonwealth markets. We hope these companies will serve as ambassadors for other UK businesses looking to trade internationally.”
