During the mission, participants will have opportunities to meet one-on-one with qualified agents and distributors regarding their products and services.

Scheduled appointments with buyers, distributors, agents and brokers, detailed mission guide and customized itineraries, logistical coordination including local transportation assistance and language interpretation services
