Getting Ready to Export
Training and support for market entry activities and market-specific information is available through Innovation PEI Global Trade Services. A regular calendar of trade missions to strategic target markets and sector trade shows is developed each year and companies can access assistance in planning, targeting the right clients in market, networking and travel assistance, as well as being part of a broader Prince Edward Island presence in the marketplace.
By extension, Island businesses may wish to host potential buyers in Prince Edward Island to further their business negotiations, build relationships and showcase their operations and Global Trade Services can help with incoming buyer visits and missions.
Companies new to exporting or looking to expand into new markets can access information, tools and resources through the new comprehensive Grow Export, export readiness initiative. From a self-assessment tool, through workshops, mentoring and in-market experience, you can expand your knowledge and competitive edge for the international market.
A regular series of workshops on specific export-related topics and targeted market information sessions is also offered. As an exporter you need to focus on your core capacity to make your products or deliver your services. When questions or roadblocks get in your way, there is assistance to get the information, tool and resources, or we can connect you to global networks that will tear down the barriers and pave the road to your next global market.
Taking the guess work out of global markets, unique buying habits, global supply chain considerations and more can make your decision to go global even easier. Sector or market research studies are available or we assist with connections to global business professionals who can get you the information you need to succeed.
Innovation PEI works with Trade Team PEI, a partnership involving multiple federal and provincial government departments and agencies, with a mandate to support the growth and development of Prince Edward Island exporters through a program of trade and investment related activities. Innovation PEI administers these projects and supports and details on these can be found at Trade Team PEI.
