Exporting products and services offers a lot of benefits and opportunities for businesses to thrive internationally. From access to potential partners; business expansions; to fund sourcing, exporting can open doors for businesses to grow their markets and increase potential profits.
In this regard, the ECCP is pleased to introduce a full-build program on capacity building that aims to provide a step-by-step guide on exportation designed for potential SME exporters. The primary aim of the 5-module program is to build the analytical knowledge, skills, and behavior of a new exporter (0-3 years of exporting experience) in order to sustain their operations in the long run. The modules are short but direct to the point with practical cases and inputs from the main facilitator and invited guest speakers.
To give emphasis on significant topics, this program is divided into 5 modules that will require 2 half-day sessions per module.
Topical Outline per Module (Two half-day sessions per Module)
By the end of the program, the participants will be able to export effectively in their identified target markets using export tools and techniques available for their use.
